Unfortunately schema-aware processing in XQuery and XSLT doesn't

Is there a workaround?

Is there is no way for an XSLT program to express: "Hey, validate xyz
against the XML Schema and if xyz is not schema-valid then discard
it." No way to express that?

Can't you just not validate the input, then test within the stylesheet
as you are testing an atomic/simple type.

Yes, in fact you could do it at a different granularity; you could read an 
(unvalidated) BOOKLIST and then iterate over the BOOK elements, validating each 
one in turn, catching any errors using try/catch, and then doing different 
processing based on whether the BOOK was valid or not.
