This is a repost of a message sent on the DDWG member list with a bit  
more of explanation.

I'm looking at a request for "Supported Markups" [1]

The suggested "Type" of property reads: "A list of properties each of  
which represents a specific content type. Each content type is  
identified by its name, for example text/HTML. Valid values are those  
conformant to MIME-type naming rules (ref: http://www.iana.org/ 
assignments/media-types/)"

I support the idea of having a property that defines if a markup is  
supported and I also support the idea of defining the appropriate  
MIME Type (especially for media, but this will be another set of  
properties), but I think that it would be tricky to have a list such  
as "text/html, text/xml, application/xhtml+xml".
I suggest that we have a set of properties such as  
XhtmlBasic1.0Support and that this is a boolean property and then  
another property such as XhtmlBasic1.0MimeType that is a string and  
its value is "application/xhtml+xml".
Only based on the MIME type how would you know if XHTML Basic 1.1 is  
supported or if it's just version 1.0?
