That's why I've marked the mimetypes with the "x-" prefix. If you do
not like that, you're welcome to register an official mime type for
each of the disk images that we support :-)

At least the MSA code checks for the right header magic value. Not
sure for STX, maybe Nicolas can answer that question. Concerning .ST
disk images, there is no header that can be checked, so the file
extension is the only thing you can rely on here.

There seems to be an application/x-raw-disk-image mime-type, but that's
mapped to other file extensions and I am not sure whether it is meant
for floppy images or hard disk images. So I think the mimetype
application/x-st-disk-image should be fine for the .ST disks here.
