There should be an API module that autogenerates an XML schema (kind of like a blueprint for the API's output, specs @ http://www.w3.org/XML/Schema#dev ), much like the current API help is autogenerated.
I'm on it

I'll re-assign to you then.
Don't presume you got anywhere with this VVV?
Since Gerrit change #6394 the api modules have a method getResultProperties, which is also outputted with action=paraminfo. So the information about the output exist and maybe can be processed to xml/xsd
This report has been in ASSIGNED status for more than one year and you are set as its assignee. In case that you are not actively working on a fix, please reset the bug status to NEW/UNCONFIRMED.
In case you do not plan to work on a fix in the near future: Please also edit the "Assigned To" field by clicking "Reset Assignee to default", in order to not prevent potential contributors from working on a fix. Thanks for your help!
I'm proposing to WONTFIX this bug: situation has changed since then, XML requests are less than 10% overall, and all the API developers hate XML with passion. We should be working towards killing this format, not adding more enterprisey cruft to it.
No objections voiced --> executing.
