XML serialisation of EPrints Data (or "EPData") for the import/export of the complete record. This is principally for internal use in the system e.g. for ingesting the results of XSL transforms from standardised XML formats. The mime-type is necessary to support correct content-type negotiation when using the EPrints REST interface.
