Is there a way to match mime-types similar to how the Apache 2 Files directive works?

For example, I might want to apply several customizations to all text/plain mime-types; intentionally not using the file extension or other criteria to match (which could easily be done with Files).

Answering my own question.

From what I can tell, it's not possible. Best alternative is to use a FilesMatch directive vis-a-vis:

<FilesMatch "\.(gif|png|etc)$">
