First of all, XML Packaging has been discussed for a long time, and I 
think it's fair to say that it's a term that covers a quite broad range of 
use cases.  Whether XML Packging will emerge as an effort that has the 
scope to cover things like S+A and Dime is very much TBD in my opinion.

In any case, I think attachment packaging needs to be on a per-binding 
basis.  Now that we're infoset based, even the XML envelope need not be 
sent in "<" form;  that too is on a per-binding basis.  If XML Packaging 
comes up with something good, then it would be a good thing if the authors 
of binding specs gave serious consideration to using it.  I don't think we 
can reduce the whole attachments problem to XML packaging.
