Not quite. It's taken straight from
<comment>Ogg Speex audio</comment>
<match value="OggS" type="string" offset="0">
<match value="Speex " type="string" offset="28"/>
So if any, it's made-up by those crazy freedesktop.org guys. I can't
quite remember where I got the audio/x-speex mime type from, possibly
I just googled mimetypes for speex files.

Well, I do not know either. However, speex appears to work fine in
Build 691. I went here:
and downloaded one of the speex-encoded files. It downloaded to the
journal and opened in Browse (Etoys was not offered to resume the
file). The browser plugin played back the file.
