>Subject: Registration of 6 charsets
>Dear IANA and the IETF Charset Reviewer;
>Please register 6 charsets:
>     ISO-2022-JP-3
>     ISO-2022-JP-3-plane1
>     Shift_JISX0213
>     Shift_JISX0213-plane1
>     EUC-JISX0213
>     EUC-JISX0213-plane1
>described in draft-ohta-jcs-jis-x-0213-00.txt and give
>appropriate MIBenum values.
>draft-ohta-jcs-jis-x-0213-00.txt is a product of JCS committee of
>JIS and is intended to be an RFC to give some description and a poiter
>on the charsets.
>After the assignment of the MIBemum values, I'll reflect it in the ID
>and contact the RFC editor.
>Summary of comments on the charsets in last December in
>ietf-charsets@iana.org and my understanding on them are:
>     There is no detailed description in English
>         The current BCP does require published description
>         but does not require it in English
>     Four of them are declared not suitable for use in MIME
>         While it is not unclear when one should say "not suitable
>         for use in MIME", one can automatically make a charset
>         not shuitable for use in MIME by using some characters
>         in the charset name, anyway
>     JIS X 0213 is not yet published
>         It's content was publisedh by WWW and it is now available
>         on papers.
>     The charsets does not add significant functionality that is
>     valuable to a large community
>         JIS is Japanese Industrial Standard of Japan national body
>So, I think there is no problem for the registration.
>If you need a third party opinion on the charsets, I'd like to
>recommend Prof. Jun Murai <jun@wide.ad.jp>, an author
>on RFC1468 for ISO-2022-JP, for the opinion.
>Thanks in advance.
