[Binary data] Application/Multiplexed content-type draft

The following draft[1] might also be applicable to the transport of
binary/application data within an XMLP message.


   The Application/Multiplexed content-type, like the
   content-type, provides a mechanism for representing objects that
   consist of multiple components.  An Application/Multiplexed entity
   contains a sequence of chunks. Each chunk contains a MIME message
   a part of a MIME message. Each MIME message represents a component
   the compound object, just as a body part of a Multipart/Related
   entity represents a component. With an Application/Multiplexed
   entity, a body part and its reference in some other body part may
   separated by many octets -- more octets than a memory-constrained
   device can deal with. With an Application/Multiplexed entity, a
   can contain part of a message. This allows a message and its
   reference in some other message to be made quite close -- close
   enough for a memory-constrained device to deal with.  This document

   defines the Application/Multiplexed content-type. It also provides
   examples of its use.
