For my money -- the key point is that it is text.  The need to find
solutions such as attachments for handling binary indicates this.  So I
would stay with 'text/xml'.

Currently SOAP uses 'text/xml'. Some people say it should be
application/xml. Extra info like 'text/soap+xml' has been proposed.

What is the final thoughts? 

Has anyone thought about using 'message/soap+xml' rather than 'text' or
'application'?
