There could be a few values of Content-type which map to text
(text/xml, application/soap, application/xml etc).

Incidentally the default implementation for sending an ObjectMessage /
MapMessage to a Stomp client could be to use XStream to turn it into
XML and mark it as text/xml. Otherwise its gonna be extremely hard for
a typical Stomp client to read the message.
