Actually, we only give examples uses images. However, the spec says:

"The data is rendered in a suitable way taking into account the datatype  
of the value, the mediatype if any, the appearance attribute, and  
localization and internationalization issues such as representation of  
numbers and dates."

so it is fairly open for an implementation.

We could discuss what we consider a reasonable minimum set of mediatypes  
to recommend.

I'll put it on the agenda.

By the way, the subject line mentions <label> and then you talk about  
<output>. Are you proposing it for both?
It seems to me that we should try to ensure that <label> and <output> are  
consistent.
