Comment: document title

The title of the draft, "Assigning Media Types to Binary Data in XML" 
is misleading, in that it purports to be a *general* solution for 
associating media types with binary data in XML. This is not true; it 
requires use of XML Schema mechanisms to assign a media type to binary 
data.

As such, this document's title may confuse people who are using another 
schema language, or are looking for a generic solution that does not 
require XML Schema. It will also make it difficult to differentiate it 
from future mechanisms that are actually general.

To clarify the intent and scope of the document, I suggest the name be 
changed to something like:
   "Associating Media Types with Binary Data using XML Schema"
   "Assigning Media Types to Binary Data in XML using XML Schema"
   "Using XML Schema to Associate Media Types with Binary Data"
etc..

Kind regards,
