Why not use vim with outline support?  Vim.org lists a couple of ways
to do it, I think:

   TVO: The Vim Outliner - Turn vim into a full-featured text ...
   Tip #74 - Using Vim as an outline processor : vim online

If you really want XML-based source files you might be able to use
Docbook and convert it to TeX and then to PostScript?  I'm not
entirely sure if Docbook is actually XML, though I do seem to recall
it covers most of your required output formats.

Failing that, consider Emacs.
