Interestingly enough, the pull request in whatwg you are referencing 
claims that "on the web file extensions doesn't matter", yet your 
suggested change means exactly the opposite.

For a mime.types change you think is needed, consider opening a 
ticket on trac.nginx.org.  If/when there is a consensus that the 
change is needed, the change will be committed.  For now the mjs 
extension does not seem to be widely used except by Node.js.
