Sometimes things will sit around until someone is willing to
stand up and say that they really need them to happen. So
if W3C needs some of these proposals to move forward in the
IETF, that might be a good motivation for progressing them
sooner rather than later.

It sounds like that's the case here.

I would guess that the "content-type" URI scheme should be
standards track.

I'd argue for an active rather than passive role: figure out
what the deadline is, and ask for action before then.
