Since the XBL2 spec is not only a W3C spec, it would be helpful if we 
could keep the MIME type declaration separate from the XBL2 spec (or at 
least separate from anything below the table of contents; everything below 
the table of contents is common to the various places the spec is 
published, the parts above it are changed for each publisher).

Personally I'd recommend just doing an RFC; that's the more generally 
recognised way of doing it, despite the IETF/W3C agreement.
