in a plugin, I have a case, where the syntactic validation via XSD is almost meaningless. I am using the extension point


but my users aren't happy with the results, because semantic validation is missing.

So, I wonder, whether it is possible to have some programmatic validation. For example, the above extension point might very well have an additional child element

Syntactic validation, by which I think you mean well-formedness, does not require a XSD. Only actual validation does, and that's limited to what a DTD or schema can specify. It sounds like you need to write your own validator for the Validation Framework, and make your particular XML files their own content type much like Ant Buildfiles are their own type.
