I see Atom as a sort of "simple SOAP" in that it's a generic, XML based
envelope for content.  It might interest you to know that it supports
using a media type to describe the content of entries, even when they're
XML;

  On the atom:content element, the value of the "type" attribute MAY be
  one of "text", "html", or "xhtml".  Failing that, it MUST be a MIME
  media type, but MUST NOT be a composite type (see Section 4.2.6 of
  [MIMEREG]).  If the type attribute is not provided, Atom Processors
  MUST behave as though it were present with a value of "text".
