SGML architectures solve the validation problem. For an example of an
ideosyncratic document that intermixes my own element types with those
defined by the DSSSL standard as well as DSSSL-syntax functions, see
"http://www.isogen.com/papers/litprogarch/litprogarch.html", _An Approach
to Literate Programming With SGML Architectures_.

Within the next week or so, ISOGEN will be releasing a modification of SP
(and therefore all the SP-based tools) that recognizes the proposed PI form
of architecture use declaration. This makes it trivially easy to do
complete architecture-based processing of XML documents using any SP-based
tool (including Jade, which we are also enhancing to enable construction of
architectural groves with the sgml-parse function).
