I would say that an XSP page/taglib would be enough for this... writing 
a specific Generator would be confusing since it's meaning would not be 
really generate but control eXist.

XmlResource.getContentAsSAX(ContentHandler handler) :) It's up to the 
impl to decide whether to pipe SAX events locally or

Scratchpad has an XML:DB Transformer which does this and more :)
