I think the trade off for parsing is that you can more efficiently
process XML off the wire inside the component that the p:unescape-markup.

It might be nice to have a "parse" option that attempts to parse the content
as XML.  The default could be that it will only parse XML media types.  If
you set "parse" to true, then it would always attempt to parse the
entity body.  If you set it to false, it would never parse the entity body.
