I think this is intentionally so (or simply nobody cared to provide this xml interface here)
Reaped nodes are meant to become invisible to discourage spammers.
And I'm not sure if really all input text is passed thru, since this might lead to a vulnerability for the viewer.
Anyway I once was capable to download all reaped nodes in order to train a spam filter, but I can't recall how I did it.
Probably I only got it in the HTML form.
Actually I see an xml-displaytype link in the original text of reaped nodes, but only in my role as pm-dev.
And it doesn't show the raw text but the perl-code producing this node.
In other words this "show original and vote tally" node with op=viewreaped; belongs a totally different class of nodes.
