What would you expect XML output for diff to look like? I'm having a
really hard time trying to visualize how involving XML would be anything
but a distraction. The diff format is designed specifically to produce
the minimal text required to feed to the patch program. If you are just
trying to find a more human readable way to visualize diff's, you may
want to investigate one of the many visual merge tools (kdiff3 or meld
for example under Linux).

Or, are you trying to produce a diff between two XML files by any chance
(that respects the sometimes unordered aspect of XML files)? That is a
completely different situation; there has been some talk about how best
to provide filetype-specific support for diff/merge.
