Yes but why wouldn't it be useful? Such a schema validates what it 
specifically describes and validates that what it doesn't specifically 
describe still operates within certain constrains.

Beyond validation, I know that editor users are quite happy to have 
schema-driven assist/completion for XSLT elements and attributes, and 
even some level of schema-driven assistance can be provided for non-XSLT 
nodes, though they aren't always even locally valid. Not perfect, but
