Don't think so. After the check the event generation is started, it seem 
complicated to create an APO for doing e.g. some mime type check callback.

Couldn't we just give the servlet service serializer e.g. text/xml as 
default mime type. That will make the check happy. Then we just 
overwrite the default in the serializer. OK, it is a hack, but it 
doesn't seem that easy to find a clean solution for this.


for how you set mime types on serializers.
