Great work!

Only thing I can suggest is that you might want to specifically mention
escaping, that the contents of a <mime/> tag are normal XML CDATA and need
to be escaped properly: http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml#syntax  In the
example the content-type="message/jabber" would need to have all of it's <
and > characters escaped :)

The server, even as it stands now in 0.6, should already properly pass
through the entire <mime/> chunk from one client to another, and it should
continue to support that transparency.

You might also want to mention that multiple <mime/> tags can be mixed
within the content in the <say/>, this might be more appropriate in places
instead of a multipart message, but both are useful and supported.

The only thing I'd like to make clear to client authors is:  It's
suggested that they support <mime/> for the benifit of their users as
fully as possible, but it is not required of them to do so.  Partial
support of at least text/plain and text/html is *highly* reccomended if
nothing else.
