This would require enhancement of the xml_archive. Such an
enhancement could be made by deriving from the current xml_?archive.

This suggests a misconception as what Boost Serialization and xml_archive
can do. The xml file generated must be in sync with the C++ structures
that generated it. In general, you can't edit the xml file and know
that the xml_iarchive will be able to handle it. It might be possible
to add edit values or add some collection items - but that isn't addressed
by the current implementation.
