Actually, Ping moved it up a level. I only decided to agree with him

I don't. MIME is not a "wire protocol" like all the other things in net --
it's used inside another wire protocol, like RFC822 or HTTP. If at all,
I'd go for having a 
Package, but Ping would yell at me again for nesting 3 levels. 
I could live with text/mime, because the mime format basically *is* text.
