Are there any good DTD- or schema-aware XML editors out there?  I have
not found one.  I use vim.

What "end" makes sure the profile is valid?  I would think back-end
daemon.  Are there mechanism to go a "test" run before actual run to see
if there are any errors?  I was thinking for things like copy.  Make
sure that the files asked for are present and the checksums are valid
before actually running the build.
