The Oxygen editor includes a tool for doing that, at least for XSD.

If all you are interested in is containment, not number (e.g. the
abstract must have exactly five paragraphs, or there must be five steps
in a repair sequence) you could also write some XSLT that would read the
exemplar and generate XSLT that would check for hierarchy. Or for that
matter generate an XML Schema directly.
