I found a way to hack around it.  It's definitely ugly, though.

Basically, I have a python script that calls page templates and
buffers the results as it writes out to REQUEST.RESPONSE.  Each page
template is *just a portion* of my final output XML file.  Since all
of the scripts and templates that I'm using are read from the
filesystem, they are the filesystem-equivalents to the ZODB-stored

Specifically, I discovered that the FSPageTemplate from CMFCore will
set the content_type attribute on the object to 'text/xml' if the file
begins with '<?xml'.  Otherwise, when it sees the xml-or-html-looking
content, it assumes a content_type of 'text/html', which lowercases
all the tags.

So I added an xml header to all of my page templates, and I strip it
back out inside the python script that calls the template (so that I
don't have the XML header repeated over and over in my final output
XML file).  Ugly, yes, but it does work.
