I've changed the file magic so that the first line has to be "#MLQ", and our
MLQ exporter writes them like that and recognizes them only like that, and
updated the mime XML spec to recognize them this way. This is no better or
"#EXTM3U" for .m3u playlists, so i don't think there is any problem here
As for the URIs themselves, i wasn't yet speaking of "open" use of them
(outside of .mlq files),
but only within them, so this change of the file magic should prevent
anything else that might use a query:/// URI in their file formats.
