Not flippant at all. It might be a good approach for some things.
My current thinking is that you would need proxy tools which both
schema to suit the capabilities of the client and rewrite the documents
to the smallest extent possible.
For example, a client system that does not allow recursion: either you need
to add ranking to names (alpha-lifting: shades of SGML!) or you need to
flatten the document (and therefore need a linking or key arrangement.)
Perhaps vendors should be encouraged more to clearly state the limits
to the conformance of their main products pages:
We don't support wildcards.
We don't support xsi':type
We don't support elements-in-elements
We don't enforce unambiguity
