[Bug 10239] How about using file-extensions instead of mime-types? It would allow application-specific files to be set as allowed.

No, the file name extension is largely irrelevant in an HTTP context.  While
there are some conventions, there are many file extensions that just don't say
anything about the file type.  e.g. .php, .cgi, .pl, etc. Such resources can
return content of any type.
