Not yet, I'm afraid, partly because xdv is still a moving target. (Most 
recent revision was around v.0.8-something, as the OpenType support 
began to settle down.) Basically, there are just a few new op-codes, 
for "native" (host platform) font definitions, for text strings set in 
"native" font, and for QuickTime and PDF images.

If you want to try and do something with xdv files, I could give you 
more specific details, but I don't promise stability yet!
