There are several ways to describe XML documents, including schemas,
DTDs, Relax NG, etc.  Unfortunately (AFAIK), none of these get past
the "syntax" layer, to any degree.  For example, if I have an XML
document that is going to be used to load an RDBMS, how would I say
which lists go into which tables, which "columns" are keys, etc?

Nonetheless, it might be worthwhile to look for a set of XML that is
documented in multiple ways, in order to compare and contrast the
information provided.  Here's a start...
