FWIW, I fully agree with this reasoning.
It seems clear to me that other application developers use and will
continue to use
MIME types, that they will want to distinguish between OGG/Vorbis audio
content, so if you insist in only having one MIME type, others will be
developed for you in a non-standard fashion. In that case, it is a
safe bet that there will be inconsistent usage of mime types between
developers, which will serve no one well.
