Himanshu,
There is an industry attempt to standardize ldap schemas in XML, called the
Directory Services Markup Language.  I have not looked at this spec, but you
may find it useful.  See:
   http://www.dsml.org/

Here's a quote from the site:

With a DSML standard, any XML-based application will be able to leverage
directory information expressed as XML. Specifically, DSML will allow these
applications to utilize profile and resource information from directories in
their native environment, by providing the standard schema for representing
this meta-data in XML documents. Such documents can then be used by
applications or transmitted via the Internet to other DSML-enabled
applications. This effectively extends LDAP across firewalls and to any
Internet transport protocol  a major benefit to all inter-company efforts.

Regards,
  Dave Carlson
