Well, as discussed in depth in the past, "encoding" presents all sorts of
issues from an XML stream standpoint, we'll just stick with UTF-8 and
touch on the possibilities and usefullness of this a few versions down the
road. Charset on the other hand would be a possibility.  Also, because of
the nature of XML, "length" would be useless, the XML parser will know
when it hits the </mime> tag and tell the software how long the data is.
