It's a long time since I went to see the list of registered MIME types. I wonder where this is going with e.g. several video or mp4 Mime types (generic and vendor specific).

And I it looks like if it's just the beginning. Even some authors propose different types with the name under different vendors spaces ?!?!?!

Any views?

Subject: Definition for ma:compressions and ma:format

Regarding the definition for ma:compressions and ma:format.

The response I got from my colleague, Torbjörn Einarsson, is that he agrees with LC comment (LC-2418, Robin Berjon), in that's unclear what to return for "ma:compression" as it is defined now.

"- even something as simple as JPEG can be coded in different ways. The file format was called "jfif", but as we know "jpeg" became de facto."

He suggest that the mime-type (which is well defined) should be in ma:format (as it is) but also include rfc4281 extensions (that describes what's in the file). 
Then consequently ma:compression becomes somewhat obsolete, but it could be used in for the case there are no codec parameters, and then perhaps rename it to "ma:codecs".


substantial: It's unclear what to return for Compression. Is JPEG a compression? Something more specific? Is it case sensitive? Partially controlled?

substantial: Does ma:format include media type parameters?
