Tomas is asking about which way to go with binary attachments. My $0.02 is that SwA and DIME are eventually going to be dead ends, if you're controlling both ends, then yeah go ahead with one and switch later. The more likely case is that your service will be called by different people, then you're going to have a hard time yanking SwA or DIME support later when you want to, you're better off taking the hit in the short term and sticking with inlined base64 content.
