RDF is a model, the semantics of RDF statements are defined in
ontologies, and not a priori in MIME content types.
It would be tedious to register for every RDF ontology a MIME content
type, if you look at http://lov.okfn.org/dataset/lov/ there can be
plenty of them in just one document, and there are no limits.
One fundamental concept of RDF ontologies is the open world assumption
The recipe for RDF graph retrieval with OWA is: send a request to a web
service (like SRU), ask for content negotiation for your favorite RDF
serialization with the Accept header, read the response, parse it
accordingly to the Content-Type header, iterate through the RDF graph
(the triples), and optionally, the "follow-your-nose" principle takes
you to everywhere else on the Web, for example, the ontologies you want
to examine, or other links. And Bibframe is just one ontology of many in
an RDF graph serialization.
So, for Bibframe data, it's all in place.
