If I snag the raw output from the server, the the first thing in the file is a long list of PJL commands.  The very last one is:

Wouldn't that be matched by the standard mime.types rule:
application/vnd.cups-raw        (string(0,<1B>E) + !string(2,<1B>%0B)) \
                                string(0,<1B>@) \
                                (contains(0,128,<1B>%-12345X) + \
                                 (contains(0,1024,"LANGUAGE=PCL") \
                                  contains(0,1024,"LANGUAGE = PCL")))

Mind you, I'm not terribly familiar with the rules for creating the rules, so that may be the cause of confusion.
