"The problem with using a schema is that you either kill light-weight
XML processing or force the translation to take place upstream, so the
client doesn't have the opportunity to take advantage of the
non-English material."

I don't follow your point about a schema killing lightweight processing.
Any sort of mapping--such as might be indicated in a schema--would require
obtaining the mapping rules and running a processor.  And I also see that it
would be useful to be able to process a document without doing any mapping.
But would this not be equally true of of any mapping scheme, whether AFs,
mappings packaged with schema, XSL-based or other?
