Use URI form for format attribute in manifest.xml

The format attributes in the manifest.xml should always be provided in URI form either as URI or URI (for Internet Media types). URIs are to be preferred over URIs.

For compatability, old COMBINE archives with Media type names should still be supported.

[special attention] formats are now URIs [fixes #18]

that, unfortunately, has some implications for backwards compatibility. formats
should now always be provided in form of URIs. old versions are still available,
but deprecated. functions returning the format will exlusively return URIs.

all the formatizing stuff was outsourced to our combine extension project,
available from git:// (see also especially the formatizer will be
interesting for you:

thus, you should definetly update your code.
