The "damage" isn't done during serialisation, it is done during node 
construction, which allows multiple elements as children of a document node.

when the xslt spec wants to say (more or less) that if you parse the 
result of serialisation you get back something equivalent, it defines 
this in terms of making an element node reference the external general 
parsed entity, and then stripping off the element node before comparison


In addition, the output should be such that if a new tree was 
constructed by parsing the wrapper as an XML document as specified in [3 
Data Model], and then removing the document element, making its children 
instead be children of the root node, then the new tree would be the 
same as the result tree, with the following possible exceptions:


so you could just serialise document nodesas <x:document>....</x:document>
and reconstruct the XDM by taking the content of teh x;document element 
(discarding the namespace bound to x) and making that the content of a 
document node. this is a little more than just an xml parser, but 
trivial bit of xquery for example.
