This the case assuming that you maintain global data structures such as 
the ID/IDRefs tables.

And assuming, of course, that your vocabulary can be described by a W3C 
XML Schema which is another debate...

BTW, I think we should find a new term to express the fact that a 
vocabulary can or cannot be expressed by a W3C XML Schema.
