Re: [xml-dev] Validate **against** a schema OR validate **with** a schema?

Defaulting values came from SGML days and DTDs..  So it's been around for a while.  Many folks have wanted the validation and augmentation steps separate though no real progress on that.

imho, "validation" and "augment" should be kept separate... If you
need the augmentation call the step just that, not validation.

I don't know the history of it, but I would guess defaulted values
were a late addition to the validation process, rather than something
included from the beginning??
