Right - the message you are responding to dates from June 21, and
announced
a two-week review starting at that date. This review resulted in a
couple of
comments, which lead to changes in the draft, and a new version.

I am planning to start another 2-week review soon, together with a
request
for an IESG-authorized IETF-wide last call.

There was no earlier registration.

The reason that there are two types is that application/smil is widely
used, but application/xml+smil is in line with an existing RFC. I'm not
sure we need to set up rules on when to use which, and I'm not sure what
the rules would be.

If requested by IANA, we will certainly do this.

Thanks for your review
