Emacs already can read the XML output.  Just try, for example, after:

  makeinfo --xml -o info.xml info.texi

to evaluate:

  (xml-parse-file "info.xml")

`xml-parse-file' is a top-level autoloaded function, so you will see
its output, which is just a simple Lisp structure.

So the main problem is not reading the XML output, but rendering such
Lisp structure into the final representation.  This could be achieved
most easily with using DSSSL-like rules.
