I think it is time to drop this limitation. Any scheme to work around
the limitation will require both ends to agree on the
work-around. Therefore, you could just as well use the
straight-forward solution that comes right out of the XML spec.

Admittedly, that may require changing the xmlrpc libraries being used,
rather than putting something on top of them. However, that shouldn't
be too difficult, assuming that those libraries somehow use an
underlying XML parser.
