Passing parameters this way seems a bit unexpected for XML. How about
something like this:

<interface type="bridge">
  <filter name='demofilter'>
    <parameter name='IP' value='10.0.0.1'/>
  </filter>
</interface>

And the same pattern for the includes:

<include href='no-arp-spoofing'>
  <parameter name='IP' value='1.2.3.4'/>
</include>
