At present, application/x-ogg.  We may well get audio/x-ogg and video/x-ogg
in future.

AFAIK, no there isn't, and IMHO there needs to be.  M3U is MP3 specific and
PLS is not all that widely supported.  Both of these would mean using one
player for both MP3 and vorbis streams.  I sent a message with my thoughts
on this to the vorbis list, but thus far have had no response.  Will gladly
repost it here if people want to see it.
