Like all/most svn output, that output is specifically designed to be
machine readable:

        <keyword>:<SP>value<LF>

There is even a hint on the one possibly multiline value (Comment).

XML output is not necessary to make output trivial to parse (in fact, I
find XML to be grossly inefficient for many situations, this one being a
prime example).
