Why? The neat thing about this approach is that the same instance
can be handled by Braille, etc, apps as well as all the present
apps. that is, adding in the fixed attributes makes every
instance ICADD-compliant. So no new MIME content type should
be needed, HTML would be enough.

(I'd rather the MIME type were SGML, but that's another matter.)
