Sorry I do not like it.

The mime type text/plain is about human-readable text, which things 
like application/xhtml+xml or text/html or even source mime types are 
certainly not.

RFC 2046:

<quote>The subtype "plain" in
          particular indicates plain text containing no
          formatting commands or directives of any sort. Plain
          text is intended to be displayed "as-is".</quote>
