Adding xml header to xquery result

xml header
The XML declaration isn't part of the data model, therefore it can't be
created by the query. Creating it is the job of the serializer.
Serialization varies from one processor to another, so the way you persuade
your product to output the XML declaration depends on the product. In Saxon,
add !omit-xml-declaration=no to the command line (oddly XQuery has decided
that omitting the XML declaration should be the default).
