The mime can't cast any spells that have a verbal component unless he or she has the Silent Spell feat. However, bard spells cannot be enhanced using Silent Spell feat.
The prerequisite of Perform should really be Act (Mime) as that is a standard skill.
I put the partial spellcastin progressions as a thing only for Mimes who had a spellcasting class beforehand, so I don't want to make it a prequisite.
However, I hadn't thought of the Silent Spell issue, and this has given me an idea...
EDIT: I have now edited my idea into the first post. Please read the spells section.
