Unfortunately blend2cs has no support for sprites (yet). (blendconv had, 
but it wasn't really usefull since it only exported static geometry). So 
you have to hack this stuff into your xml manually (or write some scripts 
in your favourite scripting language... xml should be well supported 

I personally don't have time to maintain or extend blend2cs at the 
moment... (also converting sprites is a bit tricky, since CS still lacks 
proper bone support. The .blend unfortunately doesn't contain single 
animation frames)
