   RE: [xml-dev] Validating against the correct root element using library

The specs say that you can request validation against a specific element
declaration or a particular type definition. Whether products support that
option, and via what API, is a different question (and the answer depends on
the product).

If you're using a schema-aware XSLT 2.0 processor you can do:

<xsl:template match="/">
 <xsl:if test=". instanceof schema-element(purchase-order)">
