Four approaches spring to mind:
A) Add constraints in <appinfo> elements, in terms of types, using your
Then create a postprocessor that generates the equivalent constraints in
some other schema language (WXS' integrity/uniqueness constraints,
XLinkIt). Validate using that generated schema.
B) Run your document through a transformation that converts all element
their type names. Then validate that against a WXS schema with
written using these type names as element names.
C) Fulminate & vituperate at appropriate intervals.
D) Go on holidays
