an XML-based format with semantics like RFC 5322 (RFC 822)?

    I wonder, is there an XML-based format, providing a set of
    elements similar to the RFC 5322 (RFC 822) standard header
    fields (i. e., Subject:, From:, Message-Id:, etc.)?

    The idea is to be able to exchange digitally-signed XML
    documents (as per [1]) via e-mail and otherwise, and have all
    the essential parts of the e-mail header reside in the
    (digitally signed) XML document itself.

    (The ultimate idea is to unify e-mail, NetNews, Wiki's, blog's,
    bug trackers, etc. over a single XML-based representation.)

    Someone may have put mail headers to XML (and I think that I have seen that some times),
    but I do not think that that is standardized.
