Originally, having a richer range of values than the IANA top-level
types this was not redundant - for example, testing whether something is
supported as a scripting format, as a a stylesheet, as a font, etc.

However, we have discussed this and decided to remove the
functional notation, using simply a (space separated list of) Internet
Media types.

We hope this responds satisfactorily to your comment, if not please let
us know shortly.
