Not really, no. However xmllint is itself a pretty simple program, it
would not be hard to duplicate the relevant parts of it into nALFS.
The biggest problem, though, is that the code that finds the semantic
errors runs after _all_ parsing is complete; the original XML (before
entity substitution, whitespace-munging, etc.) is gone by then.
