The template is at <https://www.w3.org/TR/trig/#sec-mediaReg>.

There's also app/rdf+json per
<https://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-json/#sec-mediaReg> but it's only a partial
registration form. On one hand, it's not commonly used, on the other,
it would be a bummer to have someone else use the same media type for
something else.

These are all in application/. N3 and Turtle are in text/. I guess
it's too late to fix that unless we want to republish the RECs.
(I feel like my name got in some template somewhere and now it pops
up in every media type request.)

<http://www.iana.org/assignments/media-types/media-types.xhtml> has:

  application/
    ld+json
    rdf+xml
    sparql-query
    sparql-results+xml
  text/
    n3
    turtle
