Well, rather than inventing bogus root wrapper elements, why not let users
call xmlelement() to produce the wrapper element themselves?

User may even don't know in what case wrapper element is needed. I mean, if
user works with XML column containing both documents and fragments, then
what must he do? Add wrapper anyway? So, users will add XMLELEMENT in almost
any case.

I'd prefer to keep external interfaces simpler (less thinking in such cases
for users).
