Schematron reaches where other languages can't
XPath's nearly infinite reach
XSLT developers have long since mastered the art of contorting XPath into a general purpose tool for reaching anywhere in a document from anywhere in a document.
Comparisons and calculations
XPath lets developers perform mathematical and string-handling operations that are beyond the reach of most schema languages. Because Schematron is itself XML, it's also possible to generate Schematron schemas which rely on more complex sources of information.
Copes well with program anomalies
If you know the conditions that trigger a bug in a particular program, you can generally write a Schematron that identifies those conditions in incoming data.
