GPX download Content-Type should be "application/gpx+xml"

It would be convenient if the Content-Type of GPX downloads was "application/gpx+xml" instead of "text/xml". This would match the media type defined for GPX on Wikipedia (, and would allow better support for GPX-enabled applications to be selected automatically by the browser/operating-system when users click on download links.

For example on iPhone Safari will render text/xml documents itself rather than passing them off to an appropriate application. If the Content-Type was application/gpx+xml then Safari would search for an installed application that knew how to handle GPX files and allow the user to open the download in that app.
