You have to create a new root element and detach content from the old root to
add it to the new root :
  Element newRoot = new Element(...);

Unfortunately, there is no Element.removeAttributes() method. So you'll
probably have to iterate on the old root's attribute list to detach each
attribute (using Iterator.remove()) and add it to the new root.
Any better way, someone ?
