Sam Ruby and Dan Connolly asked me to send 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 2009-09-03.

ISSUE-53: mediatypereg - Need to update media type registrations
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/53

This issue points out that the media type registrations for text/html  
and application/xhtml+xml need to be updated. My understanding of the  
agreement between the IETF and W3C is as follows: at Last Call time,  
we should warn the IETF that we plan to update the media type  
registration and provide them with the text for a provisional  
registration, and when the spec becomes a REC, the registration  
becomes official, based on text in the W3C spec. The spec now includes  
provisional registrations for text/html, application/xhtml+xml, and  
other content types defined by the spec:

http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html#iana-considerations

Therefore, I believe our responsibility to IANA for updating media  
type registrations is fulfilled. Thus, this issue should be closed.

Regards,
Maciej
