You could take the xml, parse it and then construct a short text which 
contains the content togehter
with annoations to mark the existing structure. This new text with the 
annotations will be placed in a new view.
Afterward you can perform your processing within these annotation bounds.

Not sure how you construct the 4th field, but when you can do that 
directly after
the xml parsing it could be part of the constructed text.

With UIMA-AS you should be able to nicely scale the analysis to a few 

Hope that helps,
