To me, this just feels like misuse of the MIME type. It should describe
the content type of the message body, not the protocol/method used to
access it. Maybe a parameter could be used instead.
Though, as I'm still not exactly sure what the new MIME type idea is
supposed to express, I've got no idea what the parameter could be called.
