I think you wont find any source control systems themselves know
anything about structure in terms of xml ... e.g. it 'sees' text
(thats one of the great things about XML e.g. you can 'smuggle' it
wherever there is a string var or text field ;)  ).

at larger scales you may want to consider some of the commercial offerings e.g.
* http://www.deltaxml.com/
* (useful links from here as well

though minimally something like oXygenXML (or XMLMind XML editor) is a
good place to start.
