Sorry to jump in late here, but have you looked at ConTeXt? AFAIK, it has modules specifically designed for using TeX (actually LuaTeX, now) to typeset directly from XML+MathML (not sure about SVG) source. It parses the source directly rather than translating it to an intermediate format. 

Hope this helps,
