This is not the case for validation of XHTML result-documents. Here, as Michael suggests, it is necessary to modify the schema. Are you serious? Most of us can easily add templates to our styleheets, but it is not a proper way forward in most use cases to open op schemas and modify them just to do result-document validation.
I guess what you asking for here is that the original pre-validation result is serialised rather than the post-validation result - this would mean the defaulted values not present in your result would be added for the validation and then discarded, leaving your pre-validation result intact. (much like when you just check a file on disk for validity - it isn't left with defaulted values after validation).
Its certainly raised an interesting question - should the serialised version of the validated result be the per or post validation instance?
