    + header('Content-type: text/wxr+xml; charset=' .
get_option('blog_charset'), true);

It's pretty bad form to use unregistered media types, and at the very
least it ought to be in the `prs` (personal) or `vnd` (vendor)
trees.[1][2] Also, it seems to me that it's a better fit for
"application"[3] than "text"[4].

Something like `application/prs.wordpress.export+xml`?

There are examples of what others are using at IANA.[5]
