Doesn't this make it impossible to have GRDDL for the GRDDL document 
itself?  Granting that this may be a stretch in common usage, I think it's 
a good test of architectural soundness that these edge cases work out.  I 
think what we're seeing here:  mime types are closer to what RDDL calls a 
"nature" than a "purpose".  You're using them for a "purpose", I think.
