Certain privileges have been revoked from some users for security reasons.  Afterwards, the status of Oracle XML Database (XDB) in DBA_REGISTRY is INVALID.  There  are some invalid XDB objects which fail to compile with the following errors, e.g. -

PLS-00201: identifier 'UTL_FILE' must be declared
PL/SQL: Item ignored
PLS-00320: the declaration of the type of this expression is incomplete or malformed

What privileges need to be granted to the XDB user to validate the status of Oracle XML Database?
