This should be application/xml-dtd according to RFC 3023. I've just
reported, that .svg files were delivered as image/svg instead of
image/svg+xml (this is fixed now), maybe someone should take some time
to check for more wrong MIME types in the server configuration files.

Please note that application/xml-dtd does not apply to SGML DTDs.

PS: Should I send such reports to site-comments@w3.org or to the
    web-human instead of mailing lists for the relevant domain?
