Very much true.

A couple more ideas:

2)     extra parameter to the <bundle> and <locale> tags:
       <bundle .. contentType="text/xml"/>

       maybe <message>,<numberFormat>,<dataFormat> tags also
       are allowed to have the contentType parameter, if they
       are allowed to set the Locale/charset?

3)     a special parameter in the request scope.

       to avoid adding the contentType parameter to all the tags
       that may potentially need it we put it into a request
       to set it we may introduce an extra tag:

       <%@ page %>
       <i18n:contentType contentType="text/xml"/>
