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.
