If you look at http://wiki.xiph.org/index.php/MIME_Types_and_File_Extensions
right at the bottom is a description of what the codecs without
container format are called. CMML as a timed text codec has a mime
type of text/cmml. Similarly, the textual representation of Kate
should be text/x-kate.

When you encode Kate in Ogg, it would not normally be expected to come
without audio or video. Thus, if it's an audio file, it should be
video/ogg - for a video file it should be video/ogg - and if it's a
random other file (such as Kate encoded inside Ogg without anything
else) it should be application/ogg with the mime type text/x-kate
inside skeleton.
