Just means you decide one package is the owner of the comps format,
and have it drop a format definition in /usr/share/xml (in
DTD/XML-schema/relax-ng format, probably DTD since notting put a dtd
in cvs), and you use the xml tools to register this format definition
file in /etc/xml/catalog.xml (like the docbook schema package does)

And then suddenly all the well-behaved XML distro tools know how a
comps file is supposed to be structured and can flag errors.

(though you'd probably need one schema for comps.xml and another for
comps.xml.in since they do not use the same tag names)
