>From RFC2046:
6.  Experimental Media Type Values

   A media type value beginning with the characters "X-" is a private
   value, to be used by consenting systems by mutual agreement.  Any
   format without a rigorous and public definition must be named with an
   "X-" prefix, and publicly specified values shall never begin with
   "X-".  (Older versions of the widely used Andrew system use the "X-
   BE2" name, so new systems should probably choose a different name.)

and from RFC2045, chapter 5:
    (1)   Private values (starting with "X-") may be defined
          bilaterally between two cooperating agents without
          outside registration or standardization. Such values
          cannot be registered or standardized.

    (2)   New standard values should be registered with IANA as
          described in RFC 2048.

Clearly, none of those application/x-whatever already in the "mime.types" file
is nor can be registered at IANA. Hence my bug 32602 report. Feel free to fix
anyone of those two defects.
Regards.
