I believe that dajobe's intention was that the submission be
autoritative; he was included in the discussions of the media
type.

I began the registration process for text/turtle; there is basically
no chance the same media type will be re-assigned to another data
format. There was a bit of disagreement over the use of text/* for
turtle based on human-readability but the argument was not popularly
supported. You can browse the fairly wide-ranging discussion
  http://www.w3.org/2008/01/rdf-media-types
but I and strongly recommend text/turtle even though the registration
process is not complete.
