Mark,

Thank you for the information. I'm impressed with the responsiveness of this
group given the number of issues you are tackling. Much appreciated!

We are wanting to complete the registration very soon, so we will follow
your suggestion of using the current process. We will also try to make sure
what we are doing fits with the new process you are developing. I will raise
the idea of merging the content-coding and transfer-coding registries with
the EXI group.

Please let me know if you have any additional guidance or suggestions for
us. I really appreciate your help!

	All the best,

	John
