Yes, this is likely. We're exploring this area at the moment: for example there are suggestions that a stylesheet should be able to say whether it requires to use a schema-aware (or non-schema-aware) processor, to ensure interoperable results. Note that we already have this in a very basic form with ID attributes in XSLT 1.0; these will be recognized by the id() function or not, depending on the XML parser you use.
