If I remember correctly, apache considers anything with a mime-type
other than text/* to be a potentially "exec" and therefore disallows
it.  There was some talk about changing this, but I can't remember the
outcome.  Your only solution would be to hack mod_include to allow
application/xhtml+xml to be treated as a non-exectuable.
