I am thinking along the line of the below based on  XCCDF content downloaded from NIST's web site to perform a USGCB audit @ https://discussions.tenable.com/thread/6342

The nessus has CLI but so far still txt based for targetlist, the past approach is based on the "--config-file" option (closest) that specify the client-side Nessus configuration file (.nessusrc) to use. This option is only used when starting the "nessus" client and not XML though.

Doesn't seems to have a direct means to do it
