MIME type of XML Schema

Congratulations on moving to PR!

As I am sure you are all aware the MSL proposes a fragment id syntax to
identify XML Schema types. This would serve as a syntax mapping type QNames
onto URI references.

XPointer provides for xpointer scheme extensions (beyond xmlns and xpointer)
for media-types _other than application/xml and text/xml_

The current PR suggests use of MIME types application/xml or text/xml

A two part suggestion:

1) Register an XML Schema MIME type, e.g. application/schema+xml

2) Define an xpointer scheme "type" using a suitable syntax to serve as a
defined extension for the XML Schema MIME type
