I'm looking for XML output that would closely mirror the logical
structure of the org file, and that would contain all the information
in the orgfile (since it's easy to ignore the parts you don't need
during XML processing).  So, something like

      <body>Here are the tasks I need to do</body>
             <headline>Buy bread</headline>


The details of the XML schema can of course change.   But it should
let you process org file data without having to parse any elements of
the org file (ideally, even dates) -- it would all be parsed by
orgmode's native parsing code and put into XML elements.

If there are questions about how to represent specific org elements in
XML I can try to write a more detailed spec.
