I don't know about a file extension, but the media type would be
application/cms as defined in RFC 7193.

I would guess, but do not know, that it was thought that one would only send
a list of one item rather than the TrustAnchorInfo structure on its own.

The other thing to consider is if one is going to want to used one of the
CMS security wrappers on the type as well.
