Subject: MIME vs. HyTime

I claim no expertise on HyTime, but I believe the intent
is to allow multimedia data in an SGML DTD.  Given Dan's
current efforts to make HTML a true DTD, it seems like
HyTime tags might be an easier addition than incorporating
HTML as a MIME datatype.  Has anyone looked at HyTime vs.
MIME?  I guess I'm wondering about this for the mail world
as well, since there is already a great deal of commercial
interest in SGML-ifying all documents.
