I think that Henrik may have meant Base64 encoding when he said "hex."
Base64 is a supported type within XML Schemas.  The main point is that it is
easily possible to carry small amounts of binary data inline in XML.

Regarding referencing data using a URI, the URI does not need to reference
remote data.  It can reference another part within a multipart-MIME package.
