I've added the missing text to the recommended checking order:

	"If no explicit type is present, magic rules with a priority of 80
	or more should be tried next. These rules have a very low
	false-positive rate."

I think some method to handle deprecated type names is the main missing
feature. Something like:

      <mime-type type='audio/x-midi'>
	<type-renamed new_name='audio/midi'/>

If noone suggests better names, I'll add it...
