It's not that Cocoon does not support this functionality in general. 
What we said so far only means you picked the wrong component types. 
Actions are for different purpose than data generation. Look at Vadim's 
post regarding the alternatives.

 From what I understand you are looking for a component converting 
Strings into XML without coping with the parsing - otherwise you could 
just implement a generator. But even parsing is totally easy, an 
implementation of your own generator could be:

InputSource source = new InputSource(new StringReader("<xmlString>");
SAXParser parser = null;
try {
     parser = (SAXParser) manager.lookup(SAXParser.ROLE);
     parser.parse(source, xmlConsumer);
} finally {

xmlConsumer is available in a generator.
