There is not-quite-but-almost-normative language
suggesting that would be appropriate:


http://www.w3.org/2002/06/registering-mediatype

"All formats defined by W3C Recommendations are
 of general interest to the Internet Community and
 are therefore registered in the standards tree
 (formerly IETF tree), which requires approval by 
 the IESG."


http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/2004/0430-mime

"1. Registration of Media Types by W3C Working Groups

 W3C Working Groups engaged in defining a format 
 follow How to Register a Media Type with IANA [IANAREG]
 to register an Internet Media Type (defined in [RFC2046])
 for the format."
