Yep.  Any of the three media types should be allowed.  There is simply
no "default mime" anymore.

application/ogg is now for applications and (very) complex multimedia.
video/ogg is for video and audio, say films.
audio/ogg is for anything audio, be it Vorbis, Speex, FLAC, whatever.

If libshout can only do audio (I thought it could do video too, but
apparently I'm wrong) the default should be audio/ogg, with
application/ogg available as a legacy option for a couple of years
until all software updates to use audio/ogg exclusively.
