PassiveTeX takes this approach

see http://www.hcu.ox.ac.uk/TEI/Software/passivetex/

From the web page:

" - PassiveTeX is a library of TeX macros which can be used to process
an XML document which results from an XSL transformation to formatting
 - PassiveTeX provides a rapid development environment for experimenting
with XSL FO, using a reliable pre-existing formatter 
 - Running PassiveTeX with the pdfTeX variant of TeX generates
high-quality PDF files in a single operation. 
- PassiveTeX shows how TeX can remain the formatter of choice for XML,
while hiding the details of its operation from the user. 

How does it work?

 PassiveTeX relies heavily on work by David Carlisle (his
namespace-aware XML parser written in TeX, xmltex)"
