First request: can we add the three MathML media-types?
(those are: "application/mathml-presentation+xml", "application/mathml-content+xml", "application/mathml+xml")

I think I could help dig the names out by looking at the following documents:

- http://developer.apple.com/mac/library/documentation/FileManagement/Conceptual/understanding_utis/
- https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.dataformats.aspx

Also, some specs and media-type-registration RFCs indicate the names in the native formats. 
I think this would be the right place to hunt too  (I know that MathML and SVG do).
Probably it'll never be complete (e.g. I do not think application/octet-stream can have a name on clipboards).

Shall I just make the suggestions as a table per (html?) mail?
