OK, so the requirement is to: 1. stick with the current XML, 2. provide RDF/XML.

I think XSLT route proposed by others is the way to go then, making a
third end point, which would take the current XML as input, convert it
with XSLT to RDF/XML. Using RDF/XML has the advantage here that you
can validate your XSLT stylesheet for the output content too,
increasing your changes of detecting typos etc.
