I would put in a
<Files *.md5$>
  RemoveEncoding gz tgz Z

# RFC 3156
AddType application/pgp-signature .asc

is correct (although it is already listed in the mimetypes file as
text/plain for some reason), but md5 isn't a pgp registered extension.
It isn't really related to pgp. I do not know of the correct mime type
for an md5 checksum file. Anyone?

Usually this would be used in a Content-MD5 header (RFC2616#14.15), which
we might want to add to the actual tarballs just as Content-Encoding.
