Yes, you could that but the jdom-contrib projet already includes a wrapper for 
SAXOutputter that performs schema validation using Sun's multi-schema 
validator: org.jdom.contrib.schema.Schema.

The javadoc explains it all but validating a document sums up to:
     Schema schema = Schema.parse(uri, Schema.W3C_XML_SCHEMA);
     List errors = schema.validate(doc);
