I wouldn't just go with distributed version control... its not easy to
understand and often the teams involved will spend more time learning
the concepts and commands than doing any work.  You really have to be
sure the benefits will outweigh the large costs involved.  It really
isn't for everyone.

Subversion is simple, the process is simple to understand, tools are
well advanced etc.  If I had to make the decision and the team
involved didn't have any dvcs experience, I would always go with svn

As for diffing xml, working at the text file level is fine, just like
it is for all the other file types involved.
