I believe you can do #1 quite easily:

boost::property_tree::ptree pt;
write_xml(filename, pt.get_child(""));

#2 becomes a non-issue then.

I appreciate you interest in the library, and need for ISA Server storage
and IIS metabase formats support. However, I think there are at least 27
billion different file formats on the planet, and if everybody wanted to
condition acceptance on his favorites, heat death of universe would
eventually stop all work in progress in that area.
