The current media type is defined in
  http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc2854.html

IESG discussed the ownership of the text/html and indicated:
- current change controller is W3C
- there can be only one owner for the media type, so the current proposal
"WHATWG and W3C" isn't acceptable to them

See item 9 in
  http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-ietf-w3c/2010Mar/0002.html
(I don't know if the minutes of the IESG itself are public)

At the present, I don't believe that W3C would agree to have a joint change
control but W3C do need to make sure to come up with a consistent story
regarding the use of text/html. For example, HTML5 doesn't say anything about
XHTML 1.1, while XHTML 1.1 does mention the text/html media type. Obviously
something needs to be fixed. Imho, the text/html should only be defined in the
HTML5 specification.

I suggest following
