Have you any opinions on how fancy an XML-based file system should be
in terms of performing validation on datatypes in the DTDs.

So far I've been leaving the validation routines out- tho' the file system
itself could handle a lot of data-handling for applications that depend 
on it I think.  

In other words, supposeing you were using a machine with an XML-based
file system and XML-aware OS... is there any reason you can think of
why it would be wise to employ datatype validation or any other types
of data integrity checkes?
