I think the right approach would be to make the new directive a
sub-directive of the resourcelibrary and/or the resourcedirectory
directive.  Then there could be a separate extension -> type map for
each directory of resources.  An alternative would be to allow the
library or directory directive to refer to a map defined elsewhere
(say, in Python), making it easier to re-use maps.

This makes a lot of sense to me, since the provider of each pile of
resources knows what they put in it and what the processing
requirements are.  A global map seems like a bad idea here.
