It isn't about seeing the XML source code, it is about the fact that you can no longer present ATOM feeds in the web browser (e.g. using CSS or XSLT as a couple of people have proposed doing[0,1]) without lying about its MIME type. Seems like quite a cost just to perpetuate the HTTP URI religion.

I suspect that anyone who really wants to see the XML source code is
probably capable of right-click-to-download or wget or some other way
around the problem.  -Tim
