Again, I HIGHLY suggest grabing the sample webapp I posted last night. 
It should put this entire debate to rest.  You DO NOT have to use 
multipart/mixed to handle multiple files with one post.  This webapp 
clearly proves that.

I guess I can't say for sure that the browser isn't doing something that 
is against the RFCs, that could be the case, but it DOES work.
