Hello all,

below is a template for an ITS mime type. Comments are very welcome -
probably nothing important. At the end of the week I will send this in,
following

MIME media type name:
    application

MIME subtype name:
    its+xml

Required parameters:
    none

Optional parameters:
    charset
        This parameter has identical semantics to the charset parameter of
the "application/xml" media type as specified in IETF RFC 3023.

Encoding considerations:
    Identical to those of "application/xml" as described in IETF RFC 3023,
section 3.2, as applied to an ITS document.

Security considerations:
An ITS 1.0 document may cause arbitrary URIs or IRIs to be dereferenced, via
the @xlink:href attribute at the its:rules element. Therefore, the security
issues of [RFC3987] Section 8 should be considered. In addition, the
contents of resources identified by file: URIs can in some cases be
accessed, processed and returned as results.
An implementation of ITS global rules requires the support of XPath 1.0 or
its successor. Hence, processing of global rules might encompass
dereferencing of URIs or IRIs during computation of XPath expressions.
Arbitrary recursion is possible, as is arbitrarily large memory usage, and
implementations may place limits on CPU and memory usage, as well as
restricting access to system-defined functions.
ITS 1.0 permits extensions. Hence it is possible that application/its+xml
may describe content that has security implications beyond those described
here.

Interoperability considerations:
    There are no known interoperability issues.

Published specifications:
    http://www.w3.org/TR/2007/REC-its-20070403/

Applications which use this media type:
    This new media type is being registered to allow for deployment of ITS
1.0 on the World Wide Web.

Additional information:

    File extension:
        its

    Fragment identifiers:
        A syntax identical to that of "application/xml" as described in IETF
RFC 3023.

    Base URI:
        As specified in IETF RFC 3023, section 6.

    Macintosh File Type code:
        TEXT

    Person and email address to contact for further information:
        World Wide Web Consortium <web-human@w3.org>
    Intended usage:

        COMMON

    Author/Change controller:

        The Web Services Policy 1.5 specification set is a work product of
the World Wide Web Consortium's Internationalization Tag Set Working Group.
The W3C has change control over these specifications.
