[Flac-dev] OS X UTI for FLAC files

I think it would be beneficial to designate an official UTI (see
http://developer.apple.com/macosx/uniformtypeidentifiers.html) to be
used on OS X for FLAC files. I have written a FLAC metadata importer
(http://sbooth.org/importers/) for which I chose the UTI
'net.sourceforge.flac'. A standard UTI for application developers to
use would help alleviate any confusion and could also eliminate
potential sources of conflict in the UTI hierarchy. For example, I
have seen org.xiph.flac used.
Unfortunately I don't have any information on FLAC support in
Leopard, but if FLAC is indeed supported natively by OS X it could be
that Apple has already assigned a UTI to FLAC.
I think the ideal UTI would be public.flac-audio, which would inherit
from public.audio. Does anyone else have any thoughts?
