In today's telcon, I quoted...

The Internet media type / MIME type for RDF/XML is "application/rdf+xml"
 -- http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-syntax-grammar/

It's also relevant to consider the OWL precedent...

The Web Ontology Working Group has not requested a separate MIME type
for OWL documents. Instead, we recommend to use the MIME type requested
by the RDF Core Working Group, namely application/rdf+xml [RDF
Concepts], or alternatively the XML MIME type application/xml.

As file extension, we recommend to use either .rdf or .owl. 
 -- http://www.w3.org/TR/owl-ref/

That results from one of my more thorough explanations
of XML media types and namespaces...

Sorry for all the little teeny messages on this issue,
but more stuff keeps occurring to me...
