Either way requires a standards-track RFC. The trouble is that
XML just isn't a content type analogous to "text", "video", "image",
"audio", "model", etc: it's a format, or rather a metaformat.
Content-types are supposed to be named based on what they are good
for, rather than what the details of the internal format are.
