  The more I think about it, the more I'm convinced that
in general, validation should occur after XInclude processing.
The only painful point are the xml:base attributes left on the
included elements when the resources included are not in the
same directory as the including resource.
  But allowing an extra attribute everywhere is quite simpler
than allowing an extra element everywhere :-)
