Hello Bill,

this is a good idea.
Is it possible, to support @ProduceMime(MediaType.APPLICATION_XML), and
also make MediaType.APPLICATION_XML available as a (e.g. for ResponseBuilder.type(MediaType),
for compariosns of HttpHeaders.getMediaType() and
HttpHeaders.getAcceptableMediaTypes and so on.

IMO it is good to put the http header names in one class/interface (e.g.
HttpHeaders), the status codes to another class/interface (e.g. Status)
and so on. IMO Status.OK is better than HttpConstants.STATUS_OK or
something like that.
