Is this referring to just the datapackage.json file (eg is that what the rel links would point to)? If it’s the Media type for the JSON file then it probably makes more sense to use a JSON vendor media type, eg:


If it’s a zip or some other resource, then a custom one would make sense, but note that x. or x- media types are frown upon.
