Sam Ruby and Dan Connolly asked me to resend my proposed issue  
closures in individual emails, with clear subject lines, and Cc'd to  
the issue originator when possible. Apologies for the spam. If there  
are no objections, I will close this issue on 2009-08-20.


ISSUE-28: http-mime-override - Content type rules in HTML 5 overlaps  
with the HTTP specification?

The HTML5 spec completely defers to Adam Barth's MIME sniffing draft.  
Thus, the HTML5 spec text at issue here no longer exist. This issue  
should be closed.

Dan Connolly pointed out, in response to an earlier email, that  
breaking out part of the document does not make the technical issue go  
away. I agree. However, I believe that referencing an unstable  
external spec does not need to block Last Call, therefore I suggest we  
track this in some way other than the issue tracker. Dan, can you  
confirm whether you think this needs to be held open? What do others
