In the light of current work done on standardizing XML media types [1], 
shouldn't the proposed MIME type for SMIL be application/smil-xml?  The 
XHTML WG decided to postpone assigning a media type to XHTML until 
"recommended MIME labeling for XML-based applications [is] 
resolved"[2].  Perhaps, it would be prudent to do the same for SMIL.
