BTW, here's a slight refinement: instead of denoting the actual schema
components in the macro, you could use XPaths to denote the start/stop
points of text to include from a schema document, then run a
pre-preprocessor to extract text from the specified doc locations and put
them in the macro. Then run the preprocessor.

Starting to sound like a job for XQuery.

But this truly can't work, right? Schemas are defined at the component
level.... ;-)
