Ok for that I propose two microcomponents

<p:generate-simple-document>
  <p:output port="result" sequence="no"/>
  <p:option name="root" required="yes"/>
  <p:option name="content" />
</p:generate-simple-document>

would generate the document
<root>content</root>

and
<p:add-attribute>
  <p:input port="source" sequence="no"/>
  <p:output port="result" sequence="no"/>
  <p:option name="match" required="yes"/>
  <p:option name="attribute-name" required="yes"/>
  <p:option name="attribute-value" required="yes"/>
</p:add-attribute>
