I would strongly argue *against* defining a URL for each media-type.
First, because this would constrain how IANA organizes its site in 
the future.  Second, because it would encourage the practice of 
using URLs in place of registered names, thereby creating confusion 
and bypassing the established mechanisms for registration of those names.
