At some point in there (would need to debug through), I believe the JAX-WS 
SoapBinding thing (org/apache/cxf/jaxws/binding/soap/SOAPBindingImpl) sets the 
property onto the BindingInfo.    From there, the AttachmentOutInterceptor 
queries that via a message.getContextualProperty(....).   That is enough for 
it to setup the MIME stuff and create the AttachmentSerializer object.   That 
SHOULD be all that is needed.    The places that call the 
databindings/datawriter write method will first call 
writer.setAttachments(...) if the MIME stuff is setup.    That's all the  
databinding should need to ENABLE MTOM.   The threshold thing is completely 
different.  I'm not even sure if that is working properly with JAXB.   Need to 
dig more.
