Cool, I just checked, and it looks like Internet Explorer shows the XML 
source if you send application/xml as the content type.  That's what was 
stopping me.  I was under the impression that text/xml was the only way 
to get that to work.  application/foobar+xml doesn't, AFAIK, though.

So in that case I have no objection to publishing as application/xml.
