(5) multiple root elements
Allow multiple root elements in a document.
Why? Because people want it. There's no technical need.
One important use case is where a file grows over time. You want it to be well-formed all the time, but you want to grow it just by appending. A log file is the classic example. Another existing use case is XMPP (Jabber).
