For XML, which has the same problem exponentiated, IETF introduced the +xml 
suffix, to be used by all mimetypes that use XML. This is considerably harder 
to do than a mere .vnd-tree registration, though, as you'd need to write an 
RFC draft :)

You might try to sneak +qml in through the side-lines, of course:

  text/vnd.rim.cascades+qml (assuming that's what you meant with BB above)

Mentioning in each (because you don't have a separate document) that +qml is 
supposed to be used for all qml formats.

Something like that.
