There is an <echoxml> task that takes well formed XML and echoes it.

<echoxml file="subbuild.xml">
   <project default="foo">
     <target name="foo">

One thing you have to watch out for here is namespace games. If you want 
xml in a new namespace
  -declare the namespaces inside the echoxml
  -keep it all explicit
  -check the output by hand to see that it looks ok

you can use <xmlvalidate> and <schemavalidate> to automate those checks
