While it's good that we are agreed, and the
webarch doc is pretty well done with this,
there's still work to do on issue

http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/issues.html#w3cMediaType-1

People still seem to be using
  http://www.w3.org/2002/06/registering-mediatype.html
as guidance, and I haven't figured out whether I believe
that thing or not. The RDF Core WG is still kinda confused;
at least: I am.

Ian, the issues list cites the 3 Jun 2002 minutes in
the acknowledgement cycle. I'm afraid that doesn't cut it.
We need to get back to the folks that asked us about this
issue and ask them if we've actually given sufficient guidance.

Plus, there are ongoing negotiations with the IETF about
registering media types developed in W3C.

I happened to chat about this with Reagle the other day;
some breadcrumbs...
