Crap. Well, as long as the offical documentation for mod_deflate describes only the old method, it should be safe to use until the docs are updated with a new alternative. It's obviously best to operate on MIME types instead of file extensions, but try not to get greedy. Some browsers even have trouble dealing with compressed text/css. You'll get a lot of mileage out of compressing text/html, text/plain, and text/xml alone.
