I don't know. I like the fact that the intermediate xml
is not validated, because one can cram all sorts of
non-xdoc elements into the pipeline. e.g. try doing

Perhaps we could find a way to exclude certain documents from
validation (or from the final report).

I wonder how such validation could operate.

When we do 'forrest site' it provides Cocoon a "start-uri"
to commence from. Cocoon appends any other new URIs that it
finds during its crawl. It generates the *.html files, etc.

Perhaps we can also get it to generate a "*.validation.xml"
for each URI too. Then after Cocoon finishes, an Ant target
might post-process all such files and summarise them into
one large report. Then tidy up to remove all those files,
because we don't want them to be deployed as part of the site.

Do you have some ideas?
