Well for those I've seen where the XML and the validation requirements
have not been trivial the app invariably either needs to do some of the
validation, or the app needs to have extra logic at the front where XML
generation takes place to make sure that the Human Understandable date
gets changed into XSDL understandable date, with hopefully some
validation code to make sure that the Human Understandable date is an
actual date. 
- obviously date is just one of the examples, other example is changing
from currency formats, for example changing 1.006.459,00 to 1,006,459.00
which is something one would most likely want to deal with anyway.
Point being that I see quite a lot of this kind of stuff having to be
done wherever the data is important and then finally the XSDL gets added
in basically checking that structure is right.
