Your HTML to text converter introduced several
places where the media type registration is
hard to decypher. Since IANA currently doesn't
post HTML registration forms, could you fix these
up before they go into the IANA registry? For
as a URL, or the runon
  An XQuery file may have the string xquery version "V.V" near
  the beginning of the document, where "V.V" is a version number.
  Currently the version number, if present, must be "1.0". 

without being clear that the string is 
      xquery version "V.V"

The 'charset' issues with this registration are
troublesome, since you never really address the
issue of whether non-UTF8 or UTF16 encodings of
in something labelled application/xquery are
allowed, and, if so, by what method the actual
character encoding is supposed to be determined.

It sort of sounds like you expect to guess, which
has lots of problems.
