Never used XMP-data, but i guess you could first pickup the entire xmp-data. Then modify it and inject it.

If you want to add to the existing data just use the existing data as a variable to insert before the new value.

Example:
If the existing dc.subject is "London" and you want to keep that, but add "United Kingdom" the variable to insert would be:
[Metadata.Text:Path="dc:subject/*[1]"], United Kingdom
