Quite a few people are working with WXS + Schematron. And I know
people who write schemas using DTDs and then translate them to WXS.

RDDL allows cataloging the resources for document. However, it falls into
the namespace-driven trap (the idea where you find an element, take its
namespace URL, find a RDDL document or schema from that) so it is
probably infeasible for jobs involving multiple namespaces, document variants,
evolving schemas, and schemas for different stages.
XAR  allows you to bundle schemas and stylesheets together into a ZIP file,
so that all these resources are under control. Schematron has a phase
mechanism to allow different patterns to be validated at different times.
