I suspect XML-RPC is the wrong tool here. This is a very 
straight-forward operation for XML+REST. Define an XML export format. 
Define the query strings to select the subsets of the data, and then 
provide URLs to grab it (with appropriate authentication of course). 
That would be much more direct and much simpler to import into another 
system than XML-RPC.
