The dump with -fxml-start dumps the declaration specified, everything it
references, everything referenced by things it references, etc. In
practice this is usually needed to get anything useful out of the file
anyway. If you really do not want the extra declarations, it is easy to
ignore them with a proper XML parser.

basic_string is a template. Only instantiations of templates are
dumped. The full name of the instantiation that is referenced by the
std::string typedef is the long basic_string<....> name because it has
all the template arguments. This is a consequence of the C++ standard
library and has nothing to do with GCC-XML.

You can use the file="fXX" attribute on each declaration to identify it
as being in your source file. That attribute references the File
elements at the bottom of the dump.
