I agree, it would be better to configure sgml-mode/nxml-mode
for all calls of xml-mode in one place.  Maybe with the help
of a new defcustom like:

(defcustom xml-mode 'nxml-mode
  "Define xml-mode."
  :type '(choice (const nxml-mode)
                 (const sgml-mode)))

(defun xml-mode ()
  (funcall xml-mode))
