I guess your saying it's hard to do and XSD as there is no limit on what elements could exist?

If that is the only problem, then we could have an XSD that knows about all the usual elements, but is not overly restrictive. It can use xsd:any to allow wildcards.  However there are issues even with that. So it'll be interest to see what Grzegorz comes up with.
