Since these seem to be pretty clearly in the application class, maybe
it should be:

	application/css-stylesheet
	application/dssl-stylesheet
	application/viola-stylesheet

On the other hand, a main type for "extra information" that one would
expect to be included in an object makes sense. Other examples might
include fonts, color maps for images, and probably others.
