Well, it is definitely better to receive XML in the body of a POST request
instead of through the query string (this can be tested for, assuming the
client is kind enough to provide it, by check the Content-Type header for
"text/xml").  If the XML is long enough, some HTTP server implementations
may not be able to handle the long query string.  Apart from this, I have no
suggestion for you, especially if you have no control over how the client
will be sending you the XML.
