Because originally the HTML WG proposed "text/xhtml+xml" but got a number
of strong objections to use text/* subtype on the ietf-xml-mime mailing
list, so we changed our proposal to use "application/xhtml+xml" instead.
See the "text/xhtml+xml vs. application/xhtml+xml" thread on ietf-xml-mime
starting from: http://www.imc.org/ietf-xml-mime/mail-archive/msg00612.html
