I've created http://www.rddl.org/content-type.htm. But also I've placed a
few resources at the bottom of the spec http://www.rddl.org/.
There are a couple of ways to do this (map an arcrole URI to a literal
string), first the xlink:href can point to a div or span tag which contains
<p>... <span id="JAR">application/java-archive</span> ...</p>
or perhaps the xlink:title can hold a literal string in which case the
<p> ... </p>
the role #literal or http://www.rddl.org/#literal can refer to a literal
string 'resource' which would be the value of the xlink:title attribute...
it also could be the content of the element if no title is present. In this
case no xlink:href is present.
What is saying is that this namespace has, not only a set of resources, but
also a literal string content-type: application/java-archive.
We are also saying that there are two roles: "#resource" for resources and
"#literal" for literal strings.
If this works, then the attribute 'content-type' becomes totally redundant
in terms of storing any useful information.

I think it is useful to develop a spec and implementation in parallel. It
provides an incentive to keep things simple :-)
