Hi all,

Concerning the naming, MIME means Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions, it
is a standard to extend the format of emails:

Internet media type is now the preferred naming for "MIME type" or "Content
type" (HTTP) as explained here:

IANA maintains the official registry of Internet/MIME media types at:

Therefore, I propose to rename:
 - @ProduceMime to @ProduceMediaType
 - @ConsumeMime to @ConsumeMediaType

Note that I still prefer the more flexible @Input and @Output annotations,
but this is the topic of another discussion.

Best regards,
Jerome Louvel
