It seems to me that that is an overly strict interpretation. The MIME standard intends that one may use "private definition" subtypes starting with "x-" (RFC 1341, section 4, near the top of page 7). (And that is in harmony with many other places where one may use a token starting with "x-" in place of a standardized token.) For a source control system, I can see the advantage of being able to specify each programming language as a different subtype of text/*.
