[gst-devel] mediatypes for AMR

while updating the media type in PWG I discovered that imho the  
mediatypes for AMR are "unusual".
1.) Since when do we use uppercase ?
2.) Why is there: "audio/amr","audio/AMR","audio/AMR-WB"

If there is "audio/amr-wb", then "audio/amr" should be "audio/amr-nb".  
On the other hand imho we could stick to "audio/amr" and use:
* amrversion="{nb,wb}"
* use the rate=8000/16000
to differenciate.

As amrwb is still in -bad I guess its okay to change it there. What  
are you thinking about it? Should we also add the lowercase version to  
amrnb and mark the uppercase as deprecated (the lowercase ne could get  
the armversion attribute too).
