I was referring to the xPathMethod feature, which I interpreted as an
attempt to define behavior inside the schema. On the other hand this feature
could be seen as an instrument for specifying derived values and
constraints, which I agree is a very good thing to have (and will hopefully
on day be part of the schema standard).

That would certainly be a killer feature for us, though certainly not simple
to implement. In fact, no data binding tools I am aware of work with large
files, but I haven't done an extensive review.

I see, I remember some discussion on how free software was not necessarily
like free beer, but IANAL :-)
