In the past i had tried to get some of this working.
After your message, i resurrected that and managed to
get a bit further. See:

FOR-1172 - enable validation of the internal xml

FOR-1173 - add demonstration of using xml source documents
without declaring a DTD

While rummaging around i also found a relevant old issue:
FOR-101 - Move to RelaxNG (with auto generated DTDs for editors)

Still need to get XInclude processing done a bit earlier
in the sitemaps.
