It's entirely possible that such processes would be completely incapable
of providing any MIME description (Media Type or Media Feature) beyond
the Media Type application/xml before they commenced sending the XML

I'm not particularly fond of the raw application/xml in cases where more
information is available, but it certainly provides a baseline in this

Now to find the "careful wording" to cover that case properly...

xmlns="*" for xmlns="[who knows?]" ???
