I should also add that a decent alternative to a media type would be
to define a new URI scheme.  That way, this type of dispatch can occur
via URIs.  But this new URI scheme need only be used in the case where
the use of SOAP does not respect HTTP's application semantics, otherwise
the HTTP URI scheme can be used.
