Official MIME types are assigned by IANA (see RFCs 2045 to 2049,
particularly 2048). However, x- media types such as those listed above
are considered proposed and/or experimental and do not require
registration before use.

As far as I can see, there are no MIME types currently registered with
the IANA for *roff. The contents of /etc/mime.types are up to the OS.
