Here's the current proposal; no one has yet commented on it.  XSchemas may 
also be converted to DTDs, and then validation may proceed that way, or an 
application could always do its own thing.
<?XSchema href="yourXSchemaURLhere" description="yourNamehere"?>

description would be completely optional, of course; I've just come to enjoy 
being able to give things intelligible descriptive comments and it's 
addictive. And if href sounds too much like XLink, we can change it.  I'm sure 

lots of other people have ideas about what this PI should look like.
