If/when that happens, it's not going to be called VRML any more; it's going
to be a new kind of thing.  I believe currently they go by the internal
monicker of "x3d"; so that would be

model/x3d-xml

The idea is to avoid the existence of both foo/bar and foo/bar-xml - SVG,
for example, plans to (already has?) register only image/svg-xml. -Tim
