Since we have gone to great pains to not use the magic MIME types
anymore, I think we should not recommend them here. Or at least not as
the first option.
Also, there is http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=670945
to take into account. Is the wording still ok if the solution I
suggested is implemented?
