There's precedence for this, as Apache has this MIME type: https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/httpd/httpd/trunk/docs/conf/mime.types (see line 1516).

Keywords: mime added

Note that nginx doesn't try to maintain all the mime types known, but rather tries to supply types generally needed for a web server. If you want to use these types in your configuration, consider modifying mime.types locally or extending the existing MIME types list using the types directive.

Of course that's always an option, but I think useful defaults are always good.
