I definitely agree. Interest in an augmented infoset is orthogonal to
validation. You presumably want an augmented infoset for meta-data
driven programming. This has nothing to do with whether you believe your
document is valid or needs to be checked.

Also orthogonal is the addition of data (as opposed to metadata). The
easiest example is adding default values. This has nothing to do with
data types (the most common form of augmentation) or validation.
