I don't properly know if this is supported in MusicXML, but I found this .

I tried it on an advanced score - there was an error message and corruption, which isn't evident in the example.

MuseScore doesn't have a proper support for the kind of polymeter hightlighted in the link from chenlung (with non aligning barline). One can fake it with false barline, but it's probably not a good thing to implement importer with this trick.

I hadn't realised the polymeter in the linked example was different.

The intention though was to research whether MusicXML was able to handle it.
