I'd tend to disagree... in other cases in which framework formats that can
encapsulate other formats (e.g. AVI, Quicktime) are given MIME types, it's
done by the framing format rather than what it contains. It's pointless
to do otherwise as if you can't read the framing format, what is the point
of being able to decode the format it contains?
