Apparently we don't need to change anything.  application/rdf+xml is the 
appropriate mime-type for RDF documents according to RFC 3870 [1].  I've 
checked with people at Mozilla and apparently the documentation should be 
updated to reflect that application/rdf+xml is valid; I'll be doing that 

Sorry for the noise and the trouble.
