Looks like mediawiki doesn't really know mime types but only file  
extensions. Found on a forum, probably worth trying:
$wgFileExtensions = array( 'png' , 'gif' , 'jpg', 'jpeg', 'pdf',  
'txt', 'xhtml', 'svg', 'xml', 'rdf');

Not sure I understand the use case of having a text or HTML upload  
capability in a wiki, though - I guess test cases etc.

As an alternative, what OWL has been doing was put the files  
somewhere (elsewhere on www.w3.org or sent to a list) and link to that.
