Somewhere within the SoapClient and libxml code are functions that 
a) parse an XSD schema into a set of data types (available through SoapClient::__gettypes), and 
b) apply that schema to an XML document to produce a native PHP object.

Would it be possible to make these functions available to all DOMDocument objects, so that an XML document returned from a non-SOAP web service can be bound - using the schema - to a native PHP object?

(related, existing functions include xmlrpc_decode, wddx_unserialize, XSLTProcessor::transformToDoc and DOMDocument::schemaValidate)

Test script:
// load the XSD Schema
$dom = new DOMDocument;

// import the schema to a SchemaBinder class, similar to XSLTProcessor::importStylesheet
$binder = new SchemaBinder;

// load the XML document
$dom = new DOMDocument;

// bind the XML document to a native PHP object, using the schema
$data = $binder->bind($dom);


/* or more simply */
$data = $dom->bindFromSchema('example.xsd');

Given that this ticket had neither feedback nor upvotes for more
than ten years, I'm closing as WONTFIX.  Anybody who is still
interested in this, please pursue the RFC process[1].
