Apache does not list unregistered types in mime.types.  How many
times does that need to be repeated?  If you want Apache to do something
nonstandard, then there are many ways to configure your own server in
a nonstandard way.  Otherwise, take the half hour required to submit
a message to IANA requesting the assignment of a type.  It is a lot
faster than getting Apache to add types that are explicitly forbidden
by IETF standards to be used by distributed software.
