Very much on topic: we are about XML technologies, of which RNG is definitely one;
it's about validation of XML documents, quite independently of whether a
particular RNG schema is expressed in XML or not.

"The exception proves the rule."  Dimbulbs think: "Your counterexample proves
my theory."  Latin students think "'Probat' means 'tests': the exception puts
the rule to the proof."  But legal historians know it means "Evidence for an
exception is evidence of the existence of a rule in cases not excepted from."
