  The fundamental difference is that Schematron is
aimed at
representing assertions to be always true in all instance
but are not representable in a schema (like "there must
be as much children as
the value of @count").  While unit tests
want to provide a specific input, to
perform a specific treatment
on it, then to compare the result to a specific
output or to
evaluate specific assertions on it (like "my:square(2) must be 4"
or "transforming <input><a/></input> must give something deep
equal to
