Sounds good to me. I'm not quite sure of the benefit of having a
separate file pointing to the IANA registry. Maybe a comment in
mime.types? I don't care too much either way, as long as things stay

For kicks, I tried startup of Apache with a big mime.types and
without. No major difference on a Pentium MMX 166.
