Hmmmm, I'd consider this a bad practice.

With namespaces, you have the ability to include several different
content types inside one file. For example, FO + SVG + MathML.

Mime-type is too weak of a concept to stand the power you need.

We carefully tried to avoid messing with mime-types inside the pipeline
(only after the serialization where all layers are flattened into one)
but "application/x-xsp" is good enough for me if you really need it.
