[Development] Qml mime types

Now Qt has several files that use the QML syntax:
* .qml files of QtQuick 1 and QtQuick 2
* .qbs files
* .qmlproject files
* .qmltypes files
I wanted to clean up a bit the mime types for the editor, and introduce q generic "QML syntax" file type.
I began doing it using the current application/x-qml type, but Marc Mutz said that it would be better to register types with iana as they did without too much effort for KOffice.
Indeed registering in the vendor tree (vnd.) seems to be doable, and I think it is a good idea.
I was thinking of registering
text/vnd.qt.qml => a file using the qml syntax, subclass of text/plain; charset=utf-8
text/vnd.qt.qml-qtquick (.qml file)
text/vnd.qt.qbs (.qbs file)
as subclasses of text/vnd.qt.qml
I would specify that the charset parameter should not be used in conjunction with these types, as they all use utf-8.
This registration should be done for qt, so I am opening the discussion about them here, and when we have a consensus the proposal can be done on ietf-types at iana.org, and then officially registred at
