text/xml for SOAP (and XP) considered harmful


I am writing as a co-author of an upcoming Proposed Standard 
RFC for XML media types.  It is in the RFC editor's queue.


SOAP uses "text/xml".  But it should use "application/xml".  
"text/xml" is appropriate only when the XML document is 
readable by casual users (not programmers).    More about 
this issue, see the latest I-D as below:
