These are defined in the DTDs. See
which also explains where the DTDs etc. are located.

As Tim described, do 'forrest validate' or 'forrest validate-xdocs'.

Also doing a quick search via our Google facility gives
the docs that you need, e.g.

The existing behaviour is a feature. It allows you to insert
other information into the xml stream. The internal format
is not validated, though you can do it if you want to:

This extra information can be injected via matches in
your project sitemap or can be in your source documents.
If the latter, then you need to either configure your
own DTD or exclude that document from validation via
the file.
