I've spent a lot of time using Infopath and Xforms together. I don't think 
this is a good way to work. Infopath, for example, doesn't produce text 
only xml and so some of the xml (rich text) produced by Infopath would not 
be readable.

I think it would be better, if possible, to re-write the schema to 
standards rather than use Infopath's schema. Not sure if that helps! 
Infopath uses a lot of rich text boxes which I don't think will translate 
to xforms, will they?
