Data Importer: plain XML?

I've done a basic XML export using Providence's XSLX mapping engine.
I would now like to import that XML back into CA (to prove a round-trip export/import) using the import-mapping as described in Wiki DataImporter documentation "Source Syntax for XML input formats".

But when I try to run the "bin/caUtils import-data" on the XML it just says:
"Could not open source"

What would be the correct format/syntax to import a non-specific (BaseXML?) XML file?
Are there any example files (XML + mapping XLSX) online I could use as reference?
The Wiki documentation examples mostly refer to spreadsheet documents as data source.

Thank you very much in advance!

    Found "lib/Import/DataReaders/SimpleXMLReader.php":
    $this->opa_formats = array('simplexml');

    Will try that.
