this revision updates the MIME type registration ti use the RFC4288 
template (see marked up changes in 

Note that this draft has been sitting in the RFC Editor queue for 
several months, just to find out that it needs to go through IESG first 
because of the MIME type registration in the IETF tree. If somebody has 
an idea about how I can get the IESG to follow up, I'm all ears (given 
the fact that we have at least two IESG members on the mailing list, I 
thought this would be worth mentioning...).

Best regards, Julian
