	I hate to start a food fight, but I have to admit that I have a
_very_ 	hard time trying to figure out why anyone would want to preserve,
extend, or encourage MIME multipart transfers for XML.

Be it MIME or something else, that isn't the issue. [MIME is just a likely
candidate 'cos it's proved useful (in both e-mail and HTTP) and is well
known.]  That said --- I would like to see "an XML protocol" (I am not
trying to start a MIME fan club. ;-)

The issue is simply that XML itself [and hence SOAP] is sadly lacking in
shipping XML inside.
