It isn't "outside" the MIME body. We're not dealing with straight MIME
because (one of the reasons) it would be more efficient to place it straight
into the <mime/> tag. The <mime/> tag is part of the body, and can be easily
constructed into a proper MIME message (for those that want it) with the
rest of the message/jabber.
