I'd find way more useful to actually test that all the XMLs we use in
the tests are validated, which does not seem to happen in this series.
This series adds schema validation only for a very synthetic negative
case which IMO doesn't make sense.
Additionally we do have 'virschematest', which is meant to validate all
XML documents in the tests. Based on the fact that you've added a
invalid XML example but it's name doesn't end in '-invalid.xml', which
is the marker for the 'virschematest' worker to do negative validation,
means that the cpu files are not validated.
Rather than adding a synthetic case, wire up virschematest which will
make sure that we don't have bogus XMLs in the test suite.
