As it happens the other OSM format - PBF is based on protocol buffers and there’s a Lua protocol buffer implementation available.  However, as far as I can tell, the format is not as simple as loading the .proto and hitting go.

Very good tool/platform for analyzing XML volumes in general is BaseX (clever visualizations, xpath/xquery, FTS)

java -jar BaseX772.jar

BTW, at the Lua Workshop2013, eXtraWay has been present, which possibly is something in the same vein, but I not have tried it yet

Spatialite (impresive set if libraries organized as SQLite extensions) seems to have support for your format:

I think, all spatialite functionality is exposed in the GUI:
