Unfortunately this seems very focused on reporting SPAM and other email 
related abuses. What I was looking for was a way to format a generic abuse 
report where the most important parts would be "type of abuse", "IP doing 
the abuse", "time the abuse occured" and "<free text field about what 
happened>" that could be used by end users. Creating a new MIME type 
precludes most end users from ever using it because their MUA won't 
support it.
