Not that I've heard of, and I also have XML source documents. One
issue, of course, is that the plugin would need some understanding of
the semantics of whatever DTD or Schema your documents conform to.

For a collection I'm working on, I use XSL to transform XML documents
(METS Schema) directly into Greenstone Archive documents. I think
this is a pretty reasonable way to deal with XML documents.
