Gavin, I just want to point out that no one is arguing that
MHTML is a bad thing.
I'm sorry for going down a rat hole. My reaction was to Keith's

and I was just trying to point out that text/* is fine for some things...
for example text/xml *if* the text is generic/not application specific.
For example, if I have a multipart message with an XML document, and
a CSS stylesheet, I think text/xml would be fine for the XML (and
perhaps application/css for the CSS ;-)).
Apart from that I agree with the general direction.
