To output XML, use the xml backend (-t xml)
and some identity transformation

<!DOCTYPE style-sheet PUBLIC "-//James Clark//DTD DSSSL Style Sheet//EN"


  (if (node-property "must-omit-end-tag?" (current-node))
      (make empty-element attributes: (copy-attributes))
      (make element       attributes: (copy-attributes))))


You can find the copy-attribute fonction on the Openjade page
