Hi Chris, All,

Perhaps we should propose and register some mime-types. Can you do a 3 
level mime-type as in text/shader/{vertex,fragment} or 
text/glsles/{vertex,fragment}? Is it useful at the Javascript level to 
be able to identify vertex vs. fragment shaders by mime-type or would 
text/glsles be sufficient?
