  The XmlTextReader from C# have a specific call ResetState() specifically
for case (IMHO broken but apparently some specification are defining this)
where multiple instances are packed onto a single stream. Only the user
level can know that the parsing is at its end (i.e. there is no (more) Misc*
following the root document tag) and has to instruct the parser of this.
