I agree, but I thought that a single envelope definition for all transports 
was implied.

I would prefer to use the XML based manifests used, but both _could_ be 
allowed.  We would just need to set a header in HTTP or SMTP like:

manifest-type: mime/type

... and some sort of emulation of headers in other transports such as FTP.
