ICA file MIME type addition?

Incidentally, registering MIME types with IANA seems to be a complete 
waste of time - I sent off the paperwork for a new MIME type for 
autopackage months ago, and never heard anything back. It seems to have 
disappeared into a black hole.

Unless I had a flukey one-off, it's probably more efficient to just send 
patches directly to freedesktop.org and make them (not IANA) the 
authority on MIME types on the desktop.
