Sorry, my first mail didn't get through because of the size of the attached 

I can't really say what happens when you interchange a fully formatted MusicXML 
generated by Finale but this is what I did to test the different output:

* engraved a piece with LilyPond
* converted it to MusicXML using PDFtoMusic Pro v1.3.0d
* manually corrected the .xml-file (surprise, surprise: PDFtoMusic Pro's OCR is 
not »perfect« ;-))
* reconverted the file to LilyPond using musicxml2ly
* opened the .xml-file with Finale NotePad 2012, Finale 2011 Demo, Sibelius 6 
Demo, MuseScore v1.1

And here are the results (first page only):
