document construction from PSVI and multiple children


in the DM spec, 4.2 Documents, it states that a document node may have more than 
one element node in its children. About a page below, it describes how to map a 
PSVI to a Document in the DM using amongst other things the children PSVI property.

I was under the impression that the PSVI only could have a single element node 
in its children, and thus that a Document with multiple children could only be 
obtained through synthetic means, or with a lax PSVI that would tolerate that 
condition. I could be totally wrong here of course since it is from vague 
memory, but I could find nothing to either prove or disprove this.

Anyone care to enlighten me?
