We generally try to keep only types really needed for majority of users in nginx's mime.types. I don't really think it's needed for majority of users. See here for relevant discussion in Russian mailing list:

As my personal discretion may be wrong, I'm leaving this ticket open for now. Decision may be reconsidered if:

  • Some rationale provided (i.e. why this is common, why default application/octet-stream isn't good in this case, and adding the type if needed isn't good also).
  • There are at least some independent requests for the same type (comment here "I need this too" will be counted as a request).

Additional, mostly unrelated notes:

  • Please keep trac in English. Thank you.
  • The patch above adds crl into short list of most important types at mime.types start. This is wrong for sure. It should be added (if at all) to "application/" list below.

We met the following scenario: online e-commerce application (somewhat similar to deployed in secure environment couldn't access external crl resource because the only web access rule was mime type based. And it didn't allow octet-stream. I do not mind to move the rule anywhere in the file.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

Closing this, as there were no additional requests got in 2 months. Adding the type in question should be easy enough for ones who really need it / actually serve files in question.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
