Actually, case-sensitivity does seem to be an issue. SVG could for example  
allow all valid media types or only media types in their canonical form.  
Regarding leading and trailing spaces, that's more a question with regard  
to existing implementations etc.

It's also unclear what has to be done with parameters.
