The "xml.pipeline.*" APIs (in the Java XML package at
http://xmlconf.sourceforge.net/java/apidoc) supports that.
There's currently only one validation filter (DTD validation),
but others could be added.
I'd hope that infoset additions which can't be spliced in the SAX2
event streams directly (defaulted attributes, say) would easily be
defined through additional SAX2 "handler" callbacks/properties...

For one example, validation errors are ErrorHandler.error() calls;
though perhaps some kinds of validation might prefer more specific
sorts of notifications.
