/ ht@inf.ed.ac.uk (Henry S. Thompson) was heard to say:
| Further to an action from last week [1] here's some discussion on this
| issue.
|
| Wrt media type, we have essentially two choices:
|  1) Recommend that pipelines be served as application/xml;
|  2) Register a new hybrid media type application/xproc+xml and
|     recommend that _that_ be used.
| Option (2) strongly implies that we should recommend a file extension
| for pipeline docs _other_ than .xml, so that server configuration is
| straightforward.

We subsequently decided not to register a new media type.

                                        Be seeing you,
                                          norm
