Webservers (IIS, Apache, etc) require MIME types to understand what certain files are, in order to know how to handle them.
Many applications do, too -- for example, vBulletin requires the MIME type when you add custom entries into the attachments manager.

This is the proper MIME type for a .xpi file:
Hope that info helps somebody.
