That approach will probably only work for relatively simple LilyPond files. 
Given the incredibly flexible syntax of lilypond files, I doubt that you can be 
able to get it right (that would basically involve duplicating the parsing and 
iterating stage of lilypond)...

The better approach would be IMO to create dedicated engravers for XML export.
