David Kuettel catalogued the (mostly non-standard) MIME types being used 
for fonts, for the Webfonts working group, in preparation for making a 
new case for a top-level font MIME type:

Propose to an Englishman any principle, or any instrument,
however admirable, and you will observe that the whole effort
of the English mind is directed to find a difficulty, a defect,
or an impossibility in it. If you speak to him of a machine for
peeling a potato, he will pronounce it impossible: if you peel
a potato with it before his eyes, he will declare it useless,
because it will not slice a pineapple.
