This is similar to the improved method Richard proposed yesterday
(insert-file-contents using a temporary buffer).  Remarkably enough
(and highly surprising to me), even inserting the XML file contents in
a temporary buffer is enough to get '(fontified nil) text properties
added all over, which xml-parse-file dutifully returns (unless
modified with *-no-properties).
