  Which may be extremely hard to express with XSD (if not impossible) due
to the lack of support for co-occurence constaints (things like "you can
have a vmx children to a domain node only if there is no kernel attribute
on the parent" are impossible top express with XSD, making versionning
near impossible). I suggest reading about Relax-NG
