Robin Cover pointed me to:


Which, in addition to providing all kinds of useful background, pointed me to 
an Internet Society Internet Draft on "XML Media Types" by E.J. Whitehead and 
Murata Makoto. 


It's an excellent draft, and makes clear that character encoding issues need 
to be addressed in transfers.  The only question I have is that they're 
registering text/xml and application/xml.  Are we expecting all XML-encoded 
files to transfer under these two MIME types, or will more specific MIME types 
emerge for particular types of XML documents?
