  The problem with using a specific text/xhtml mime is that it sets a
  dangerous precedent, and could lead to a potential explosion of mime types.
  However some kind of negotiation must be performed.

  If the mime type was something like: 'text/xml.html' so that the
  '.html' represented the xml dtd, I feel the precedent would 
  not be _that_ bad.
