Re: [xml-dev] Nested Documents (was: XML 2.0)

I don't understand what you mean by "more tightly linked"...

Having multiple roots is almost as having multiple documents, one after another, in a single message or in a single file... ?!?

I have seen plenty of examples of XML documents which are nothing but a collection of sub-documents and, in these cases, the root is meaningless, just there to have a valid XML document. When you convert a CSV file to an XML document, you have to create a root element, let's say 'Records', without attributes, and as many 'Record' elements as lines in the CSV file. I think 'Records' is useless...

You didn't respond to what I thought was the more interesting point: multiple roots result in producer, intermediary, and consumer being more tightly linked.  Yes, as someone pointed out, you have the issue of trailing comments and PI's, but I'll do a hand-wave and say those are not common.  And I admit I'm trying to brush off something I find inconvenient. :)
