I'm not sure what schema validation would have to do with XEP or any
other FO processor--do you mean validation of the schema document itself
or validation of instances against the schema? In any case, the use or
non-use of a schema for a document instance has nothing to do with its
formatting or its transformation into FO (except to the degree that your
transform depends on the id() function working).
