In any case, this stuff is trivial under XOM. You invoke a Builder
from a StringReader, get the document element, detach it, and insert
it into the main document where you want it to go. This works because
XOM nodes, unlike DOM nodes, can freely be ported from one document
to another without doing anything magic and expensive to them.
