Hi all,

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

http://www.w3.org/ns/formats/microformats
http://www.w3.org/ns/formats/microdata
along the already present
http://www.w3.org/ns/formats/RDFa

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 ;-)

Best,
Tom
