schema aware processors
# yes and no, a schema aware processor has to be able to take as input a
# data model which is annotated with types. 

It also has to support the xsl:import-schema declaration and the validate
and type attributes. The semantics of these constructs is defined explicitly
by reference to XML Schema. 

What's more, the conformance rules are written in an "all-or-nothing" style.
You either support all these schema-aware features (import-schema, validate,
node annotations) or you support none of them. The XSL WG deliberately tried
to avoid having products that cherry-picked the individual features they
wanted to implement.
