For TREX, at least, I can think of several ways in which you could
integrate it with something like Schematron. For example, you could add
a <validate> element to Schematron that would occur as a child of <rule>
just like <assert> and <report>.  The semantics would be an assertion
that the tree rooted at the context node matched the TREX pattern in the
<validate> element.  A more elaborate possibility would be to have a
top-level element (ie child of the schema element) that defines named
TREX patterns, then add an XPath extension function that tests whether
the tree rooted at the current node matches a particular named pattern;
you would probably also need some way to give a helpful message
pinpointing how it failed to match.
