It was my understanding that the null delimiter is imposed after the
completion of each root element - ie. it isn't placed after nested elements.
Is this correct ?

Also , the delimiter seems to be imposed even if you are transmitting
conformant XML as a string.  So even though you can evade the first problem
, the closed tag, you can't effect the second because it marks the end of
the write action on the socket.
