I wasn't proposing multiple media types, I was proposing a single 
media type that isn't `application/ld+json`.

Interesting. That's pretty clumsy, but maybe it will work. How well 
are MIME Type profiles understood by the average developer (this is 
the first I've heard of them)? What's the rationale to use a profile 
rather than a dedicated MIME type?

one + according to the RFC.

Okay, thanks. That suggestion was by Manu in a hallway conversation, 
but I should have researched it better.
