A late comment on this: I was thumbing through the new MIME drafts and
started wondering: Would "multipart/parallel" better describe the sort of
compoud document to which you want to apply this? I don't know of any
current uses of "multipart/parallel", but it sounds like it has the right
semantics for you.

As we discussed privately, the semantics of "multipart/related" seems more
like the parts refering to eachother as against simply being "a bunch of
things that belong together". I think perhaps "multipart/parallel" has the
latter semantics.

Just a thought.
