Hypothetical Question about Views

I have a hunch, however, that separate mime types for different views is
inappropriate, or is this good? Any thoughts?

Sounds like a needless complication to me - I don't see what this buys
you.

Creating mime types for different views *all destined for the same
recipient format* is, in my opinion, an inappropriate use of the mime
types.

And just a niggle... Thing.all implies you are retrieving @things,
plural.

you use three separate controller actions?

I would. Sounds like it would be clearer than fiddling with
respond_to. Obviously you'd want to share the data generation stuff
between the various actions.
