AFAIK there should/must be only one top-level node which is named <xml>.

I am confused ...
Is Sun breaking the rules here?

Depends on which set of rules.  The "XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Data
Model" is a bit more general:
Of course an *XML document* is somewhat more restricted,
but if you want to use DOM to support XQuery/XPath/XSLT objects
it makes sense to allow more generality.
