Solr can index arbitrary XML by applying an XSLT transform to it
before indexing. But you still need to write the XSLT transform.

Solr can also index arbitrary XML with DataImportHandler by pulling
out specific fields. But you need to write mapping rules.

I am not sure what exactly is being done here. I would have expected
some error message if just a random XML is being thrown at Solr.
