I imagine, in my encoding, that converting a file with beyond-XML features
such as embedded binary would result in:

<binxml:binary xmlns:binxml="http://binxml.warhead.org.uk/binxml">
 ...some Base64...

Eg, I create a binxml namespace to put special elements in that
approximate the "magic". This ensures an end to end via XML and vice
versa, which is nice.
