I know of several places where folks are doing schema validation on *their
own output* as well as everywhere they get an incoming XML message.

Perhaps they are less sanguine than you are about bugs.  Or more
realistic. :)  They are also concerned about malicious parties introducing
bad data.

These are mostly financial institutions.  As some of them have some of my
money, I'm glad they are so cautious.
