Is (b) really feasible?  You really want to take on the burden of xml canonicalization?

And (a) isn't an answer -- you're log-reading program has no way of knowing if the log-writer is done or if the disk filled up just as it was trying to log ENOSPC. :)  Less flippantly, multiple roots mean the producer, transport, and consumer become more tightly intertwined, which doesn't seem like a good thing.

Doesn't seem like a good tradeoff just to read logfiles, especially when there's already work-arounds (which don't make the world catch on fire).
