I'm not sure there exists an authoritative source for this yet. I can't find 
any discussion on this in the XLIFF TC-list archives regarding definition or 
registration of a mime-type for XLIFF, and it's certainly not in the XLIFF 
specification. This is perhaps something we should consider going forward? 
(cc'ing the XLIFF TC).

Unless (and until) the mime type is registered with IANA [1], it should 
probably be written as "application/x-xliff+xml".

Friedel, thanks for bringing this up!
