Ok. In my own builds, I just added

   readonly attribute bool hasXMLDeclaration;

to Document.idl; that seems the minimal change required
to support polyglot so le me try an implementation.
Please don't discuss the quality of that change, it's only a test.

It is clearly not enough for full XML support that require to put back
xmlEncoding, xmlVersion and xmlStandalone.
