Yes.  Thanks for the chance to comment.

The internet draft looks good to me.  One minor comment...

I presume that RDFS documents will also be assigned the
application/rdf+xml MIME type, i.e. there is no plan to also register
application/rdfs+xml?  This is fine, I just wondered if it should be made
explicit in the internet draft?

Andy.
