Been there, done that, wrote the XML import support for mdoc-update:
FILE may contain either csc /doc XML or ECMA-335 XML.
The problem is, ECMA-335 doesn't contain documentation for very many
types -- only 331 types and 3797 members. This sounds like a lot, until
you realize that mscorlib.dll has 1283 public types containing 2464
members, and System.Xml (also partially documented in ECMA-335) has 258
types with 4952 members, so the documentation included in ECMA-335 is
really just a drop in the proverbial bucket.
