Only use this if you do not want the XML declaration to be written; this object is ignored by the XML writer. Otherwise, instantiate your own XMLDecl and add it to the document.

Note that XML 1.1 documents must include an XML declaration

def XMLDecl.default
  rv = XMLDecl.new( "1.0" )
  rv.nowrite
  rv
