Thanks for this, Sean.

It occurs to me that the attributes of the MIME type will also work perfectly on a #! line prefixed to the file, something that might be quite handy for the many cases when a MIME type associations is not directly usable/preserved. 

Three examples: (1) when the MD is embedded in PGP ASCII-armor as text/plain for verification of reliable transmission/authenticity, (2) when it occurs recursively, as when embedded in comments in a program that might be part of a literate-programming construction as it does in F#, and (3) in an export format from a Wiki for preservation/transport as wikiText to another Wiki that might deal with flavors for import.
