Fwd: Proposal: Add .mjs file extension to known to be JS

The proposal instructions on the nginx website state that it is for
bug fixes and so it seems that would be the wrong place to put a proposal.
I can do so and cross reference.

To be clear; whatwg is using it in their specifications without any Node
usage implied; if files are produced with that file extension by copy and
pasting the specification examples (such as those in HTML Standard
they would fail on nginx. There is also an IETF MIME update that should
finally be published soon: draft-ietf-dispatch-javascript-mjs-09 -
ECMAScript Media Types Updates
<https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-dispatch-javascript-mjs/> . If
the goal is not to be compatible, but only to apply to file extensions
after they are popular, that seems a bit odd to me at least since it means
knowing that upcoming things are potentially incompatible and willfully not
preparing until after the problems occur.
