+1.  I don't want to see our config file cluttered with lots
of 'x-' types.  If it is very popular, it should be
registered as non 'x-' types.  We don't have problem with
accepting those official types.  If we accept one 'x-' type,
it would become harder to reject other private types.  It
will eventually lead to conflicts of private types.  I don't
think we should spend time discussing which private types to
keep in our config.  Don't accpet any private MIME type is
really a good policy, I believe.

Just my 2 yen.
