Sure, though not exactly as you might expect.  You would build the Document,
get the header element.  Then, if you could live with <header> as part of
the the string just use XMLOutputter and output the element to a
StringWriter.  Otherwise, you will get the header content loop through it
and successively write each element to the same StringWriter.

At a high level (meaning I haven't tried this) this appears to be all you
would have to do.
