I don't have a cat, but maybe I should. In the meantime I'll consider 
nominating one of Ian's cat in a separate Change Proposal.

That actually *is* in the change proposal.

Anyway, here's a new revision:


In the IANA registration templates, the specified change controllers for 
text/html and text/html-sandboxed differ.


text/html-sandboxed is defined as a subset/profile of text/html, so it's 
definition de facto is controlled by the change controller of text/html 


Make the specified change controllers consistent by changing the Change 
Controller field in Section 12.2 ("text/html-sandboxed") to "W3C".


1. Positive Effects

It becomes clear that changes to most aspects of the text/html-sandboxed 
media type are controlled by the change controller of text/html.

2. Negative Effects


3. Conformance Classes Changes


4. Risks
