I've come to believe that documents are always of an infinite 
number of types! So yes, I think you can easily say

  foo.xml *conforms* to type specification A based on it's

  foo.xml *conforms* to type specification B based on it's
  content structures.

  foo.xml *conforms* to type specification C based on the
  combination of it's elements and attributes.

The operative word is *conforms*... type is painted on
data by a set of assertions.
