Same here. I'm still trying to dig it up but I think I remember
seeing the "+foo" annotation explicitly specified in the normative
application/xml media type specification. But I'm not seeing it so
I could be wrong.
The "+xml" suffix is the only suffixing scheme at IANA and is
normatively defined in the RFC 3023 XML Media Types . The section
linked to below contains justification for inventing the suffixing
scheme, which is almost as interesting as it is amusing. :)
