Apropos this; I was wondering about mime-types to be used in
Skeleton.  audio/vorbis for instance is not a current recommendation
for general use to avoid irritation to the IETF (as I understand) and
currently, for example, audio/x-ogg is suggested.  What is the opinion
on using the final codec mime types (audio/vorbis for instance) in
Skeleton, as this information is static and as it doesn't overlap with
anything anyone else is doing?
