      I've been looking around for popular mechanisms for encrypting message
      bodies. multipart/encrypted and multipart/signed seemed like a general
      widely used (or not?) format for encryption/signing.

      My question is, wasn't Content-Encoding designed for this very thing?
      Wouldn't it make more sense to have:

      POST /somewhere
      Content-Type: application/xml
      Content-Encoding: encrypted; key=...

      <data>
