An XQuery processor that implements static typing should be useful here.
XQuery stipulates that if it can be statically determined that an
expression $x/path (where the variable $x is declared to have your
schema's type) always returns the empty sequence, this should be
manifested as a compile-time error.

The same could apply to XSLT 2.0, but I am not sure.
