OK, so an extension to OpenSearch since OpenSearch currently uses  
MIME types to distinguish the type of a response. IMHO this is  
undesirable since it essentially makes opensearch treat microformats  
(hAtom) as a special case.

But maybe I've got something wrong here with my understanding of  
OpenSearch. I just pinged people over on opensearch-discuss [1] to  
take a look at this thread so maybe more light is available.
