Something like that is possible with pl.xml, with the following declarations:

local xml = require 'pl.xml'

local macro, names = xml.tags 'macro,names'

It's originally inspired by Orbit's 'htmlification', but doesn't use
fancy function-environment tricks, which have the disadvantage of not
checking the spelling of tags.  It's easier to debug Lua than XML, so
the tag constructors need to be declared here.
