The W3C Technical Architecture Group have been concerned about conflicting 
sources of definitions of fragment identifier semantics located by 
following RFC 3986 and the media type definition. We believe that those 
defining and registering media types (including ones that follow generic 
rules such as 3023bis) need more explicit advice than currently contained 
within draft-ietf-appsawg-media-type-regs.

In particular, we are working on defining best practice for use and 
definition of fragment identifier semantics, and the document 
http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/doc/mimeTypesAndFragids-2011-08-12 is under 
development (although it has not been formally reviewed or approved by the 

We believe media type registration authors should be pointed to these 
recommendations by reference from draft-ietf-appsawg-media-type-regs.

We would like to coordinate the development of these documents effectively 
and would appreciate your feedback on how best to accomplish this.
