well, it's the silly script of course

the mime-type CAN use variables, but there is some defaulting in the
code happening upfront which causes it to sneak through the grep -v
VariableResolverFactory

so it's probably safe to state that the generated list was (slightly)
bigger then it should

ok, if we vote PRO making them dynamic I guess the too large list is no
problem: it would just mean the work already happened :-)


of course this assumes my script doesn't make errors in the other
direction (which I don't think it does)

anyone up for a better attempt at filtering out the ones we need to
discuss? Or should we just make a full list of all attributes, discuss
it completely and then go back to the code and check/fix for what we
decided?


actually this brings me back to the 'documentation' issue around
'arbitrary-looking' decissions for the newcomers I rose in the original
post (would be nice if we could really automatically list what is
available and dynamic or not)
