Dear TAG Members,

# resent to public TAG mailing list

During the development of VoiceXML, the Voice Browser Working Group
has encountered an issue that it thinks should be submitted to the
TAG. The problem is about how newly registered media types should be
integrated back into existing specification.

The case at hand is the new media type 'application/ecmascript' [1]
not normatively defined yet, but which is recently became a new
Informational RFC (RFC4329). This document obsoletes the old types
'text/ecmascript' and 'text/javascript' and states that the only
appropriate media type for external scripts is

The question is: once this media type comes out, how will it affect
existing specifications that support external ECMAScript scripts and
that either mention obsoleted unregistered types, or don't mention
types at all.

Is it recommended that the specifications be amended through errata,
and implementations be changed accordingly?

Could you please provide comments by July 18, 2006?
Thank you for your attention to this important matter.
