Either use base64 encoded data inline in the XML (and stay away from DOM
or use RFC 2387 multipart/related MIME encapsulation and use a URI in the
XML that points to a CID: part of the message.

See "XML-binary Optimized Packaging" [1] and "XForms Serialization as
multipart/related" [2] as examples.

Also take a look at the XML Binary Characterization Working Group [3].
