D'oh! Fixed in 1.107.

But, really, you have to take this up with someone other than me or  
with the DAWG, I think. The Director has stated his preference for  
the N3 mime type, and I'm accommodating that request. So while I  
appreciate yr not being satisfied, there's nothing I can do to fix  
that, short of removing the example completely, which isn't going to  
happen on my say-so alone.

I prefer "www.example", and it's legal. I consider this comment to be  
editorial and I won't be making any change with regard to it.
