I was confused and misspoke. Expat is non-validating.

However, Jeremy Kloth added native validation support to Domlette in 4Suite
(which uses Expat), and removed support for validating via xmlproc.  IIRC (and
I'm not sure I do) there was something recently fixed in Expat that made this
practical, perhaps related to DTD parsing? I don't remember.  jkloth will need
to comment.

Sorry for the confusion, and thanks for pointing out my error.
