The editors of the media-type note suggest that issue 162 [1] should be 
closed.

This is a left over issue from the first draft [2] and subsequently 
resolved on task force concall on April 19th to allow IANA media type 
token values to indicate media types. The rationale is already explained 
in the first text draft [3] and restated below.

It is observed that there is already machinery and implementations for 
recognizing IANA media type tokens for the web. IANA tokens would 
already be supported by the underlying infrastructure that the web 
services would rely on. Therefore the note do not need to address 
supporting other types of values.

Regards.
