Coincidentally, I'm actually playing around with building the newest
maven-doxia stuff at the moment, and it looks like it does still
require the XML classes. According to its pom.xml, it is still
assuming itext 1.4, so I guess that's where the requirement comes
from. I'm not sure whether it needs the rtf stuff too ...

So I think we do need to keep the XML stuff but I'm not sure about the
rtf stuff.
