sedamo XML address output

The //sedamo// API API returns a XML containing the address in Romanisation (that is, re-written in Latin characters A~Z only, even avoiding decorations such as “é”), and in the native script. Here shown for the sedamo code CT-QP-ED-TP (which is the code for the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests inside the Temple of Heaven in Beijing, China).
