If you're going to make a case for choosing one of the options over another based on relative deployment cost ("far more cheaply"), I think you need to provide some analysis of deployment costs.

What is the cost of putting an HTML parser in front of every XML processing pipeline? Have people done this? What has been their experience? Does it really work? 

(If the problem is lscripting expecting a different DOM, adding an HTML parser at the "front end" doesn't seem to help.)

What is the cost of deploying a new MIME type instead of application/xhtml+xml? Who pays what cost?

I just don't think you can say "far more cheaply" without additional analysis.
