What’s the maximum MIMEtype length for storing type in a database?

Would anyone be able to tell me what people are using for the length of a MIMEType field in their databases? The longest one that we use is 72 bytes but we're looking to see if there are longer ones. We've actually started using 250 now but is there anything longer? Thanks for the help.

No, there isn’t

127 for type and sub-type each, so that’s 254 max, plus the ‘/’ is a limit of 255 for the combined value.

    We've started using 100.
    MS have mimes in the mid 70s (pptx is 74)
    - haven't come across anything else with this sort of length yet.
