this is a pretty cool idea. i think that the profile should specify whether
the content is going to be base64'd or not. also, if it's just nested XML,
i'd probably use a CDATA block, e.g.,

<start ...>
    <profile ...>
        <![CDATA [
            <hello> <world /> </hello>
        ]]>
    </profile>
</start>
