Why multiple root elements?

(5) multiple root elements
   Allow multiple root elements in a document.
   Why? Because people want it. There's no technical need.

One important use case is where a file grows over time.  You want it to be well-formed all the time, but you want to grow it just by appending. A log file is the classic example.  Another existing use case is XMPP (Jabber).
