I'd rather argue that xml datatype should not even accept anything but
complete xml documents. Same as int field does not accept int.
Or maybe we rather need separate xmldocument and xmlforest/xmlfragments
types in next releases and leave the "base" xml as it is but deprecated
due to inability to fix it without breaking backwards compatibility.
