The final sentence does say that it's the W3C who is the change
controller.  This wording I cribbed from draft mime type registrations
for Voice XML (Internet-Draft process).

Changed to add EricP's name and the above email address.

I'd rather keep the references specific to the mime type registration
form close to it as the RFCs cited there are only for that registration.

I've just noticed I wasn't linking from the first use of items such as
"RDF Term" etc. directly to the defn in SPARQL Query so I've changed the
html style from <em>foo</em> (<a href=... SPARQL Query sec x.y</a>) to
just <a href=...>foo</a>.

I've also noticed that Query Results is not defined in the QL spec, so
I've changed the first reference to Solution Sequence (when talking
about variable bindings results) and used 'query results' as a shorthand
for this document.

Deleted use and references to xmlenc and xmldsig.
