I'd be perfectly happy with application/xml, if we could
guarantee that practically all XML processors at the other
end of the pipe grokked (and dispatched on) namespaces.

I don't think we're there yet, but I'd like to be proven
wrong.  I've said all along that application/soap+xml is
only a stop-gap until application/xml can be used.
