XPath and XML Schema, and since it is be desirable to validate a form
independent of its instance data, it's possible they may have some overlap
in interest on this question.

I don't know of anything like this. I can see why it would be a useful
sanity check of XPath usage in some contexts. I.e. "warning: //foo can never
match in schema XXX because there is no 'foo'".

Anybody got any pointers?
