This is not true. XInclude operates at the *processing* level and not
the syntactic level. The only constraint XInclude imposes is that the
IDs within the included documents must not conflict with any IDs within
any other included documents (or the including documents).

If you are using an Xinclude implementation that fails when you include
a document with an XML declaration then it is not a valid XInclude
