What's the preferred mime type for binary avro and json formatted avro files that I should use in an app? For example "application/avro+binary", "application/avro+json"?

The current avro spec mentions that when HTTP is being used as a transport for an Avro-defined protocol that the content type 'avro/binary' should be used. There's an open issue about this not being a valid content type, though there hasn't been movement in a while.
AFAICT, this means there isn't a general best practice at the moment. I have some ideas on the matter, perhaps we could discuss this on the dev list and then update the relevant jira?
