Serialization Section 4, "XML Output Method": The third paragraph contains 
a circular definition of the serialized output that depends on the 
serialized output. Presumably it intends to say something like this: "If 
the document node of the data model has a single element node and no text 
node children, then the serialized output is a well-formed XML document 
entity that conforms to the XML Namespaces Recomendation. Otherwise, the 
serialized output is a well-formed XML external general parsed entity 
which, when referenced within a trivial XML document wrapper like this 
..."   (This will clean up the circular logic. But this whole paragraph 
should be edited based on the "documentization" process described is 
separate comment IBM-SE-001.)
