Here is the fulfillment of my action item regarding MIME type related
parts of the Proposed Addendum to SOAP with Attachments[1]

1.	Proposal defines a global attribute, MediaType in the
http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/2003/04/xmime namespace which specifies a
media type as defined in RFC2045 for the (conceptually) base64 encoded
content of a given element in a SOAP Envelope. If such an element does
not have this attribute "application/octet-stream" is assumed.

2.	Proposal defines a type which derives from xsd:base64Binary and
adds the above attribute.

3.	Proposal defines a global attribute Accept in the
http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/2003/04/xmime namespace which specifies a
list of media types. This attribute appears on element declarations in a
schema defining what types are accepted by a given element with
(conceptual) base64 content.
