In particular:

1). 
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/PER-xquery-20090421/#id-registration-of-mime-type> 
is using own order of sections (and sometimes uses different section 
names) from the template prescribed in Section 10 of RFC 4288. I thought 
information about Magic numbers is missing, but I finally found section 
"G.4 Recognizing XQuery Files", which covers that. In the future, I 
would ask W3C to use the correct template, as it makes checking 
registrations easier.

2).

Is there any good reason for allowing Latin-1? IETF pretty much settled 
on only using US-ASCII, UTF-8 (and rarely UTF-16).
