OK, so they use XML but not *real* XML.  Might this be, oh I dunno, a
Microsoft technology?  :-)

Anyway, JB (as usual) comes armed with interesting URLs.  :-)  I added a
setSuppressDeclaration(boolean) method to the TODO list for XMLOutputter
before beta5.  Any complaints, speak now or forever be "suppressed". 

That's probably not funny, but it's been a long day.
