If there's a standards doc that definitively states that the mime-type
should be application/xhtml+xml, then I can see about changing it
in the core.  (But it might also depend on the DOCTYPE -- I haven't

Regardless, you can correct this locally without changing the core
files by adding the following line to local/config.php, after
the activation of the utf8 script:

    $HTTPHeaders[] = 'Content-type: application/xhtml+xml; charset=UTF-8';

This will then override the utf8 script's setting.
