In some sense, but if a schema is never applied, then your PSVI will only
use the primitive types defined by XML 1.0. In other words, you shouldn't
need to change your data model at all. Now, some stylesheets that require
type matching to work might not work in your engine, but people choosing to
use your (presumably) lighter-weight XPath engine would, I hope, be aware
of that limitation.
