1. Currently document2html does not create *html*, it creates a div which a
*part* of html. It does not render <html> as the root element.

2. document2html is not the last point in the processing pipe, it assumes
that there is the last stage (site2html) that produces the final html and
thus it can have other elements like meta-data as long as the site2html
generates valid html.

3. Having two elements <meta-data> and <div> as result of document2html
allows to separate meta data (not necessarily html-related data) from a
<div>. It allows to have additional xslt transformation that can be applied
to <meta-data> only and not to parse <div>.

Do not think about meta data as merely html/head/title or
html/meta/keywords -- there might be other data associated with a document.
Look at advanced jpg properties (date, location, equipment make, camera
model, author, etc.). It's more than title and keywords. I can put
camera_model to the <div> as a hidden element and than extract from the div,
but this will be awkward. To have a separate meta-data element is cleaner.
