the completely free-form site.xml where each node can have pretty much 
any element name doesn't lend itself to a schema / DTD easily. maybe it 
would be useful to revisit that decision and switch to a system where 
you have

<node id="uniqueid" href="index.html" label="About"/>

this would also enforce that each node has a unique id and is therefore 
addressable by site:uniqueid
