Eh? Unless I'm missing something, the "consistency rule" is a valid MIME
object. It seems to me quite legitimate (though probably unnecessary) to
have MIME headers overflow the first segment.
I would expect the concatenation of segment data to be treated as a single
MIME object, and analyzed accordingly. (This raises the interesting point
that the default text/xml MIME type should not be assumed until the first
blank line after the MIME headers has been seen.
