On most TV documentaries I've worked on yet there was a really tight deadline and the workflow wasn't ideal from the set on (lots and lots of different cams which weren't set up correctly, doubled filenames on some cams because they started every shooting day with A001 or something like that, different framerates, etc. etc.) so such a project is really a pain to conform with a XML especially if you're under a really tight deadline and you need a very fast turnaround. So with such projects I'll ask for a ProRes4444 with EDL. But if you have enough time, budget and not a super tight deadline and/or a conforming assistant then I'll go for a XML workflow with the original camera files. Especially if you know they had a good/ideal workflow from set to post. With most narrative shorts and music videos I go this route and it's never a hustle and working great.
