XMLWriter::endDocument() closes properly all remaining elements not yet closed.

Without XMLWriter::endDocument() :

<?php
$xml
= new XMLWriter();
$xml->openUri('php://stdout');
$xml->startDocument();
$xml->startElement('a');
$xml->startElement('b');
$xml->startElement('c');
$xml->startAttribute('foo');
exit;

/*
Outputs :
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<a><b><c foo="
*/
?>

With XMLWriter::endDocument() :

<?php
$xml
= new XMLWriter();
$xml->openUri('php://stdout');
$xml->startDocument();
$xml->startElement('a');
$xml->startElement('b');
$xml->startElement('c');
$xml->startAttribute('foo');
$xml->endDocument();
exit;

/*
Outputs :
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<a><b><c foo=""/></b></a>
*/
?>
