LaTeX written this way will likely be harder for a human to
read than LaTeX written by a human.  For example, every
instance of \TeX must, absent clumsy look-ahead, be written
as \TeX{}, and every newline in an XML <para> must be
converted to a space with the result that a <para> of, say,
10 lines, will, absent an algorithm for line width control,
come out as a single very long line in translated LaTeX.

My other observation here is that there are libraries in
various well-known computer languages that facilitate
translating SGML or XML document types to other document
types or formats.  I prefer Perl.
