Hi Eric,

According to How to Register a Media Type for a W3C Specification [1],
the Registration Status for text/turtle, which the SPARQL Protocol REC
uses, is "?!?”. Does this mean that it was never submitted to the IESG
for consideration?

Strangely, the Turtle Team Submission says that it was submitted:

   This information that follows has been submitted to the IESG for
   review, approval, and registration with IANA.
– http://www.w3.org/TeamSubmission/2008/SUBM-turtle-20080114/#sec-mediaReg

But the "has been submitted" link is to this email:

http://www.w3.org/mid/20071218114549.GQ8244@w3.org

Which is to ietf-types, not the IESG. So there's no evidence that the
steps described in [1] have been completed with respect to this media
type. Certainly the type has not been registered, because it doesn't
appear in the IANA's Media Types Assignments List [2].

You're listed as the contact for this in [1], so I thought I'd drop you a note!

Cheers,
