One of the reasons XML API was deprecated is the fact that it weren't
getting much CI testing and as Doug Hellmann once mentioned - "if
something isn't tested then it isn't working".

I'm okay with fixing it (if someone really needs that feature), but we
don't have any means to prevent further regressions, so it may not be
worth it.
