How about adding something to the xml prolog that must be present when
the document contains multiple root elements:

<?xml version="1.0" multiple-root-elements="yes"?>

Make it like non-UTF-8 or UTF-16 encodings - if it's not present the
document must have a single root element, if you do want multiple root
elements then you must specify it in the prolog.

Seems straightforward enough...
