Hi all,

Sounds like a good thing to do, if the list can be extended to contain

along the already present

With regards to MIME types and file extensions for common RDF
serializations, those, as far as I can tell from the various specs or
spec-like documents, are meant to be as follows (where sometimes
common practice differs):

RDF/XML: application/rdf+xml (*.rdf)
Turtle: text/turtle (*.ttl)
N3: text/n3 (*.n3)
NTriples: text/plain (*.nt)

This list, as Nathan points out, leaves out embedded RDF/semantics
like RDFa, micro{data|formats}.

I think using an extended list based on http://www.w3.org/ns/formats/
is a good solution. Plus a name change to the API ;-)
