Well, I was surprised at how quickly Relax-NG validation was compared to
DTD validation. When validating the LFS book against the docbook-rng
schema I didn't think it had done anything as it was that quick.
Removing an end tag to produce obviously invalid XML soon proved me
wrong! In short, I don't think users will notice at all if the client
was to validate a profile before doing anything with it.
