If I remember correctly, Lofton agreed explicitly to review your
review... In the meantime, I have a few minor comments below:

Hmm... They're saying "is in conformance with", not "is conformant to",
which I understand with a different meaning. Maybe they could use a
different wording to avoid this kind of problem, e.g. "It is believed
that this specification is in accordance with the Web Architecture
principles as described in AWWW".

(FWIW, I still think it was a mistake for AWWW not to include a
conformance section, precisely for this reason...)

In particular, do they address deprecation? obsolete features? Maybe you
can plug a general question on how this backwards compatibility affect
the various classes of products (viewsers/authoring
tools/interpreters...). I've seen that some of the comments below touch
on this, but maybe a more general one would be useful.

Maybe you can elaborate a bit on this; you and I understand well why so,
but probably not your readers :)

I think it is traditional to have the email address of an individual for
a mime-type registration, since that's an IETF process.
