Currently, the Label code only supports text attributes, but we should support
other types, such as image or SVG labels.  From

This is what currently happens.  We start loading an external resource for xf:label if it has @src on it.  When the stream starts coming back, we check to see what the content type is.  If it is not "text/plain", we throw an error and quit out.  This bug is to add support for more types (like images or SVG).

Is text/html or application/xhtml+xml also planned?

As planned as imgages and SVG :-)  They'll all *probably* work right now.  Just need to take the time to test them to make sure.
