  To further my comment a couple of days ago about "it might be nice
  to attach a mime-type", I can certainly imagine a scenario
  where a glorified subversion client might want to send back a complicated
  template.

  Picture someone who builds an enhanced client that integrates bugtracking,
  branching, tagging, approval, workflow, etc. In this scenario,
  it'd probably be very useful to have an xml-like log message template
  language that the client can present a neato form for (drop down lists
  to choose bugs, etc).

  Whether it's worth considering that use case however....
