This is important for WebDAV, since the one public comment we received
during our last call period on the Distributed Authoring Protocol was a
concern about WebDAV using text/xml without this media type having yet been
registered by IANA (which requires IESG approval for IETF tree media types
like text/xml).  This removes one of the major roadblocks for approval of
the WebDAV Distributed Authoring Protocol.
