minidom is essentially just the data structure; it isn't the actual parser
(though using Expat is made tremendously easy since its sure to be available
for recent Pythons).
It should be possible to create a DOM builder that uses libxml2 and performs
DTD validation and/or schema checking. You might want to look at Martijn
Faassen's lxml package.
These features do not exist in the Python standard library or PyXML at this
