I had already suggested that several times , But to expand it the
present mime icons Sebastien has done...

We could loose the paper , move the colored bar to the top right , while
the icons are done same way as in Sebastien's #2 mockup

But Cory likes the paper idea , and is set on it.

@ Sebastien: Cory is right about too much detail in the video mime
files. we could remove the "3" / the circles /bars / all 3 of them.
