  I am accustomed to the lazy evaluation style of Haskell, where passing
  parameters of infinite length is something natural,


       take 5 [1,2 ..]

  takes the first 5 elements of the infinite list of natural numbers.

yes so in this case I was sugesting starting with [1,2 ..]  then first
applying mapping a function from the natural numbers to strings that
writes the number as a unicode string by writing it using a using
unicode characters to represent the "digits"  digits 0 to hex 10FFFF.

that gives you the (lazily constructed) sequence of all unicode strings.

Then filter that sequence using a function from string to boolean
that is true if the string is a valid xml file.

this could all be written in haskell.

Of course the algorithm is totally impractical although it could be made
more practical by having a more sensible sequence of initial strings.

even the impractical algorithm has some use though, it proves that the
sequence that you ask for does indeed exist. Of course if the set of
documents were in 1-1 correspondence with the real numbers rather than
just the naturals, you would never be able to order them into a
