Why change the mime type associated with .ogg, instead of just adding the
new mappings for .ogv and .oga?

IMHO, redefining the associated mime type for .ogg is out of scope for this
bug (and an inappropriate change post-beta), and just adding MIME mappings
for the new extensions should be sufficient.
