I'm tempted to say HTML-only, but I know some people will want e.g. image-only publications for comic books.

In fact, I think this also depends on other things that have not been discussed yet: for instance if we require that each primary resource has a link to a manifest, and that we don't want to rely on HTTP headers, that rules out images, audio, or video. (I'm not saying this is the right approach, I'm just giving an example of a decision down the road that is related to the issue at hand).

Romain.
