A few days ago Mozilla added support for this MIME type. I actually thought it was therefore already registered, but apparently everyone is actually waiting for this.

Will somethine like ‘application/rdf+n3’ be specified as well, eventually?

Yeah it’s tacky, but I read one of your posts and wanted to share:

I wouldn’t count on it.

I’m glad I didn’t comment on “Undergraduate Overachiever” by asking “Yeah, but what have you done lately?”

hi-five, Aaron!

About N3… the design note specifies a media type of text/rdf+n3 and the w3.org web server is using it:

$ curl -I http://www.w3.org/2000/10/swap/util/validate.n3
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Content-Type: text/rdf+n3; qs=0.89

Anybody wanna do what Aaron did for RDF/XML and finish registering it?
