    This list definitely isn't complete ("mips" should be "mips1",
    "mips2", "mips3", and "mips4" at least), and I'm not sure where the
    M6800 processor (an old 8-bit CPU) fits into the picture... ;)

    I'm also confused about the use of a MIME type for the
    document-format value and a keyword for the file-type value...

    The policy stuff doesn't belong in the driver info - policy is
    something an administrator will set, not the driver, and without
    any means of authenticating that policy you're just opening yourself
    for security risks.
