Read carefully http://www.rfc-archive.org/getrfc.php?rfc=4329 and
http://www.rfc-archive.org/getrfc.php?rfc=3023 (to which RFC 4329 points at
some parts, because there it is defined and highlighted likewise) especially
concerning charset and encoding and the differences and vantages/disvantages of
text/* and application/* media types in that particular manner.

Apart of that, Ian: I don't want to discuss with you a discussion that has been
done by the author of that RFC (Björn Höhrmann, whom you might know well), when
he proposed that RFC to the IANA. Should we invite him to this discussion? ;-)
