It seems Xiph tries to get their types registered. As far as I can tell, they
have registered application/ogg and audio/vorbis. Application/ogg as a media
container and vorbis as a RTP-stream. It is their intention to use the same
mimetype for vorbis in ogg and in RTP. Besides these they want video/theora
and audio/speex, but I havent seen any evidence that these are registered, so
for KDE I've only added x- versions. Similiarly the FLAC-people are talking
about registering audio/flac, but I can't tell if they will register flac in
ogg differently, so I decided to use audio/x-flac and audio/x-oggflac in KDE
(since they have different binary formats).
