Anything that has start/end Document is by definition not a fragment, as
far as I can see.

Well I can't prove if it is common, but it seems a very useful thing to
be able to do to me.

But it doesn't do the same thing. If anything the existing output()
methods are redundant since the user can easily call start/endDocument
himself. But uncalling them is not so easy. If people are dealing only
with full Documents, shouldn't they be using output(Document)?

Which is certainly a departure from JDOM's claim to be easy and
intuitive to use.
