Interest in an augmented infoset is orthogonal to validation. You presumably want an augmented infoset for meta-data driven programming. This has nothing to do with whether you believe your document is valid or needs to be checked. Also orthogonal is the addition of data (as opposed to metadata). The easiest example is adding default values. This has nothing to do with data types (the most common form of augmentation) or validation. -- Ron
