I don't know if it would be possible to come up with something
generalised enough for the majority of possible XML document types and
applications, and in general, it's better to keep code separate from
documents (whatever the format) -- Word macro viruses alone should
serve as a sufficiently cautionary tale on that point.

All the best,
