Thanks Fred, that's exactly what I found to my disappointment when, after a helpful response from Kit Baum, I sat down (lay down actually - it was my bedtime reading) to have a proper look at the MI manual. 

So, it's back to desmat (produced by John Hendrickx, and a procedure I've relied on for years, and will continue to use, as it still does things that Factor Variables doesn't) to generate the dummy coding when using xtmixed (or any xt procedure) and mim.

Thanks
