There is no such thing. In fact Drupal is quite limeted in what it sends as 
XML. There is no central/standard methot that created XML, so its up to teh 
indvidual parts to genreate their own. Off course there are APIs, but the 
generation nd selection of what to show is non-centralised.

I think the best way to fix this is make an XML theme. I realize not all pages 
can be XML-ified (think node/XX/edit), but a huge majority can. And isnt XML 
not just another way of viewing your content? Themes are meant for "other 
ways of viewing content".
