I'd love to see Schematron, as the only language which allows easy and
selective validation (not to mention domain-specific validation as
well). I still don't quite see why you didn't go the MSV way apart
from distribution issues (we have schema, rng and schematron
implemented as msv plugins in our validation stuff), but hey, as long
as you're giving free code away, I'm happy ;)
