 You can use the Schematron open source schema language, which is
 specifically aimed for the 1001 non-regular constraints that real data
 Off the top of my head (and correct for prefixes), the appropriate
schema would look something like this:
<sch:schema  xmlns:sch="http://www.ascc.net/xml/schematron">
  <sch:rule context="Inventory[parent::Store]">
     <sch:assert test="parent::*/@numberOfProducts = count(Product)"

     be equal to the attribute "numberOfProducts" in the Store
