You could always include your length info into the payload, and make 
implementors promise to put it in the first 1KB (for example) of the 
stream.  Something like this:

<metaFile len="12345" xmlns="urn:microsoft.com:graphics:wmf">
    <setAbort len="1">shpl0itz!</setAbort>
</metaFile>

Please remember that you can't fully trust this kind of number that 
comes in over the wire, and it makes no difference whether it's in- or 
out-of-band.  Luckily we have ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException... :)
