Hm. To be honest, I am not sure either. In fact, rfc6838 only defines 
the syntax of the format, as far as I can see, but it does not contain
 any specific values.

I think going along the line of @gsergiu should work, though. We leave
 the current text as is, because it just says that the value must 
follow the syntax in rfc6838, and we add a note (non normative) that 
refers to the other document making it clear what its status is, i.e.,
 that it contains the currently registered types and that it is 
constantly extended. "Extended" is the operative word here, ie, 
applications may safely use a media type once it is registered 
because, afaik, it is never removed.
