mime xml
Since one of the primary purposes of Content-Type: is to instruct
a receiving program (email client, Web browser, or what have you) on
the proper application to deploy in order to interpret the
MIME entity, it seems to me that it would be useful to standardize
a "type" parameter with application/xml and text/xml.  Legal
values would be "document", "entity" (including both external
parsed entities and external parameter entities), and "dtd".

Typically, "documents" would be passed to an XML browser, whereas
"entity"s and "dtd"s would be simply stored; alternatively, "dtd"s
could be passed to a DTD viewer.  Passing "entity" or "dtd" MIME
entities to an XML browser would or could produce an unwanted
parsing error from the browser.
