Sure, anyone can have specific processes locally that do anything.

But for sending documents out on the web, we need to have a
standardized processing model where people know "oh, I
don't validate until after XInclusions, then I schema validate,
then I XSLT."   

XInclusions are recursive, from what I understand, so we
need to know whether those documents are validated before
inclusion too, and/or schema validated, and whether the
validation happens after all the inclusions or before.  

If there is a conflict between the schemaLocation on an
XIncluded document and a parent, which is used? If there
are two stylesheets, which is used, or should theXInclude
use the parents?
