I've read the XML spec a number of times, and have never seen anything
to indicate that a unique root is necessary.  It's just another element,
like any other.  In fact, XML doesn't care which element you use as your
root element.  Either Heinrich has misread the spec, or I have.

On a more practical note, I just checked libxml2 and Xerces, and neither
require that the root element be unique.
