Extending Tomas' idea a little bit more, I gather an "NML Output  
Templating" or a general Templating
system for each output mode would be lovely, yet probably over- 
complicated... maybe just a "custom
output mode" that could read a template.tpl file, and write the  
output for each host based on that

actually this is exactly the reason why Nmap supports XML output.  
Using XML style sheets you can merge the information from the output  
XML into any template system you want to use (think XSL).

Or to come back to Tomas' problem, I think it is a more elegant  
solution to integrate Nmap's XML output with other namespaces than  
extending Nmap's own XML vocabulary. There already exist several quasi  
standards to deal with projects (e.g. DOAP [1]) which are probably  
more suitable for practical use than anything the Nmap community could  
cook up in a pinch.

just my 2 cents
