PostgreSQL? Not currently. It's been proposed but was held up by a lack
of a standard XML format for table dumps. I think someone found one, but
if so they've just started work. Besides, most of the discussion was
about XML query output rather than dumps.
Of course, "held up due to a lack of standards" could describe a lot of
XML-based tech ;-)
