It's becasue internally rapidxml is used to process the XML and this
library requires null-terminated string containing an XML. But I don't
see a reason why e.g. an istream or an InputIterator e.g.
istream_iterator couldn't be passed instead. This would require to
modify the rapidxml code that currently resides in PropertyTree but is
doable. Alternatively we could maintain a modified copy of rapidxml in
regression for now and possibly later merge the changes in PropertyTree.
