I thought he meant something different ....

ie. make sure the document you make, cannot have more than one root by mistake.

Not, make sure there is only one <xfwt> tag in the whole stream.

I'd like to be able to modify more than one file at once if required as well.

Unless I am to buffer the whole document before Serializing it, I do not
understand how I can tell that the part I am Serializing to file is going
to have something in the xfwt namespace before I have to start prefix

Maybe I do not understand Sax Processing properly.
