Inventing MIME types like that is NOT easy if you have any interest
whatsoever in registering them with the IETF.  

I believe (though I'm not certain any longer) that the x- space has been
deprecated but in any case its use has never been warmly recommended.

x-xhtml_with_svg is even wilder a hack than the +xml at the end - I have
to admit I'm impressed by that.
