Dear IESG participants,

This message is to request approval for the registration of the media
type "application/exi", as described in Appendix F.2 of "Efficient XML
Interchange (EXI) Format 1.0":


This message follows the procedure described in the Media Type
Specifications and Registration Procedures, section 5.2, "IESG
Approval" [1]. The proposed media type were sent for preliminary
community review on :


Questions were asked regarding the need to have a media type for EXI,
resulting after clarifications in the addition of the following
paragraph in the document:
Consideration of alternatives : 

When transferring EXI streams over a protocol that can identify and
negotiate the content coding of XML information independent of its
media-type, the content-coding should be used to identify and negotiate
how the XML information is encoded and the media-type should be used to
negotiate and identify what type of information is transfered. 


We believe the media type is now ready for IESG approval.

Thank you,
