Actually, I've been pushing that idea for some time, and in fact such
URIs already exist.  The URI corresponding to media-type xxx/yyy
is simply http://www.isi.edu/in-notes/iana/assignments/media-types/xxx/yyy
(there really is a file there!).

And it would be trivial to map the Content-Type properties to
the query part of the URI.
