Dear Philippe (and W3C),
IESG has no problems registering this MIME type.

However IESG would like to ask one (non blocking) question, which might 
result in update to the registration:

Many EXI documents can not be understood without the associated grammar 
which does not have to be provided inside the EXI doc. It might be good 
to define an optional parameter that provides a URI or some sort of name 
to find the associated grammar.

Please let IESG know if you would like to update the registration, or if 
you want to register it as is.
