Hi Maxim,

It's probably more of a "nice to have" than "needed", but this
MIME type is already being used by the image filter and JSON
is definitely more popular than some of the other MIME types
in that file, so I don't see a reason why it shouldn't be there.

Definition moved to (hopefully) correct section of the file.

Best regards,
Piotr Sikora
