Mike Dierken asked a number of questions about use of a "namespace
identifier" to qualify the MIME type of a SOAP message.  (Henrik proposes
something like this in
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/xml-dist-app/2000Dec/0159.html )

Discussing this as a namespace identifier misses the main point.  The
essential issues are 

a.    Is the MIME type qualified by a name from a centralized registry of
permitted names (e.g. soap) or by a URI (e.g.
http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap). 

b.    Does the qualification appear as part of the MIME type (e.g.
text/soap+xml) or as a distinct parameter (e.g. text/xml;
use="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap")?
