I think there might be a fifth option:

Commit your own changes to xml
Commit the generated files in a second step

For me building the generated files is some sort of compiling and personally
I never check the changes done by such commits.
Just my 0.02 cents.
BTW: Even if the generated files only contain changes caused by my own changes
to the xml files I used to commit the changes to the generated files as a separate commit,
following my first one containing only the xml changes. Is this ok or do people
prefer if I commit them in one step in the future?
