I think a lot of stylesheets go into production after testing with a very
small sample of input documents. It's often too expensive to do anything
else. In this situation, developing with schema awareness can greatly
increase your confidence that the stylesheet will also be able to handle
input documents that vary significantly from your initial sample.
