How can I split an xml file into two based on contents?

I have one XML file  and I want to create two files out of it based on contents. Is there a way I can use Java and xslt to split one xml into two. Please look at the attached sample xml. I want to create two xml files out of it. One with type=city and the other with type=village
<main>
<item name="address" type="city">
<street>
  422 N California Dr
</street>
<city>
  San Francisco
</city>
</item>
<item name="address" type="village">
<street>
  422 Walrus Way
</street>
<town>
  Modesto
</town>
</item>
</main>

There are multiple ways of doing it (depending upon your choice of parsers), but the base workflow would be:
1. Parse the DOM tree using java. Write two DOM documents based on the type.
2. Use XPath to retrieve nodes of type 'City', flush it as a document. repeat the same with type 'Village'.
