Thanks for the tip.  I did some searching and found xmlstarlet but it
seems not to want to deal with RELAX NG:
alex@x301:~/Docbook/Opus$ xmlstarlet tr --xinclude
/usr/share/xml/docbook/schema/rng/5.0/docbook.rng main.xml
compilation error: file
/usr/share/xml/docbook/schema/rng/5.0/docbook.rng line 2 element grammar
xsltParseStylesheetProcess : document is not a stylesheet
A little more poking around and I came up with
$ xmlstarlet tr --xinclude
/usr/share/xml/docbook/stylesheet/docbook5/db4-upgrade.xsl dreamplug.xml
 > dream.xml
which when followed by
$ jing /usr/share/xml/docbook/schema/rng/5.0/docbook.rng dream.xml
all seems to work fine.

I don't quite understand why a program that expands xincludes would
want/need a style sheet.
I would have thought that one wouldn't be necessary until the next step
after validation:
$ xmlto --skip-validation html dream.xml
although xmlt never seems to complain at not having one.  I've assumed
it was using a default.

xmlstarlet is not just a program for expanding XIncludes. You passed it
the 'tr' command, which is for applying XSLT. If you want to validate
against a schema and do XInclude processing, use xmllint, which will
happily handle both XIncude and RNG for you:

xmllint --xinclude --noout
--relaxng /usr/share/xml/docbook/schema/rng/5.0/docbook.rng dream.xml


Thanks, Shaun, for taking an interest.
On my (Ubuntu 12.4) system,
apt-cache search xmllint =>
libxml2-utils - XML utilities
bluefish - advanced Gtk+ HTML editor

Googling xmllint tells me that "It is included in libxml2."
A little more time with the man page should get me up to speed.

I very much appreciate the tip.

is xmllint part of libxml2-utils?

Also, in your call to xmllint, what does the noout parameter signify and where do you specify the source file?
(I'm sure I could figure all of this out if I could find
