I'd support the idea of having a "languageResource" category. In terms of
format I understand the need for standardisation here, but we need to be
aware that it is far more common for people to use TMX,XLIFF,TBX etc.
rather than a MIME type, so having the "other" option should cover this.

languageResource should also allow for a list (it may already), as the
process may be instructed to use multiple specified language resources e.g.
a specific termbank plus a specific corpus etc.
