Rather than getting RELAX NG into Xerces-J, I see a huge point in 
getting JARV[1] and the Sun MSV into JAXP. This would enable us to chose 
the technology without bloating the parser. A language neutral variant 
should probably be added to the DOM as well, instead of the mess (IMHO) 
that is specified in Document Object Model (DOM) Level 3 Abstract 
Schemas and Load and Save Specification [2].
