Future versions of Word will publish in an XML "Open" format (it's not open, and is in fact a weapon MS is using against Open Source Software), but for now, no. From the looks of it the XML export option has a lot in common with Word-generated HTML. Ick.

More importantly, tools are needed to get documents out of proprietary, vendor-locked formats into something you have a hope of opening in ten years.
