I think that it makes sense to have the DEFAULT_MIMETYPE in the catalog.cfg and the have a mime_type=... option passed. This will allow people to maintain backward compatibility if their catalog uses the `old` default setting of multipart/alternate and allows people to control the header if they want to use anything other that multipart/mixed.
