Well, it looks like we we fighting so hard we didn't realize that we
completely agree. I never advocated having _only_ the generic
application/ogg MIME type. [Especially since I pointed out already that
the Vorbis spec does allow for the audio/x-vorbis special case.] I was
simply trying to say that there must be a way for handling the general
case, and that the special cases can be handled either by a special
tool, or by the general tool as instances of the general case. It all
comes down to choice.
