Right. Please drop the (dot-separated) prefix, especially since there is not such thing as a hierachy here -- unless you are proposing "appliction/atom.feed+xml" as well, James. (Which you hopefully won't ;-)
And while you are at it, why does "application/atom-entry+xml" contain a hyphen? Both "application/atomsvc+xml" and "application/atomcat+xml" do not. We should maintain some consistency here.
Speaking of which: What file extension do you recommend for use with "application/atomentry+xml"? ".atomentry"? Just ".entry"? Something else entirely?
