Hi [unnamed],

Perhaps you want the Schematron 'include' element, which (from the
sound of it) does what your new element does, except the precompiler
is already built in.

Undoubtedly there are differences, and sch:include may not do
everything you want (specifically, it can include a pattern or rule
but it can't include an entire Schematron) -- but it is unextended
standard Schematron. See,
section 5.4.4.

The other issues are hard to say anything about -- and they're off
topic for this mailing list. But then, so is (in general), Schematron
... maybe on the edge only because it is closely tied (in reality if
not in theory) to XSLT.

Cheers, Wendell
