EMBED and validation

This may be obvious, but I can't find it in the spec.

In XML-Link, does XML content that is included by EMBED in a valid document 
have to go through validation like the other parts of the document?  Is 
EMBEDded content considered part of the document for styling purposes, grove 
manipulation, etc.?  This could potentially have an enormous impact on two 
DTDs I'm developing.  At present, the material I would like to embed will 
validate anyway, but it may not always be the case in the future.  Information 
embedded after the document has loaded appears to create an entirely new set 
of parsing and styling problems, but hopefully there's an answer already - the 
tool is too good to pass up.

There's always ANY...
