I don't see any possibility to do this in the pipeline. My idea was to 
do the mime type setting (on the http response object) in the 
endDocument method of the ServletServiceSerializer. It could be done 
after the:

IOUtils.copy(new StringReader(serializedXML), 

but before:

IOUtils.copy(servletSource.getInputStream(), super.output);

The http response object is available from the object model.
