Some initial feedback on Instant Saxon:

[1]	For me, this was the US cavalry coming to the rescue (OK, so I'm not
a native American...). My validator for xml-Schema "all" expressions was
taking 5 to 6 minutes of exponential thrashing for a simple unit test.
That's now down to 1.3 seconds!

[2]	the lack of xsl:include can be worked round by using external
entities in XML, eg

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<!DOCTYPE greeting [
    <!ENTITY valid SYSTEM "valid_x.xsl">

<xsl:stylesheet indent-result="yes" default-space="strip" 

<!-- get validation engine in (can't use xsl:include because unsupported
in Saxon) -->
<!-- xsl:include href="valid.xsl" / -->



(though you have to modify the included file to strip out the outer
xsl:stylesheet layer since it is a simple textual inclusion)

Many thanks, Mike!
