There's no requirement in XML that they do as far as I know, so it's
just the Augeas lens that isn't permitting it.

Even better, please file an RFE to get them supported.

https://fedorahosted.org/augeas/  (you need a Fedora/FAS account)

I think the subject of Unix vs. Windows line endings has come up before,
but since Augeas is primarily used for Unix file types then I don't
think any lenses support Windows line endings.  XML seems like a good
exception to the rule IMO.
