Joseph told me that he would be interested in following this, but that
was long time ago. Let's try to get the ball rolling in the meantime.

I need some feedback from ex-XML-ENC WG members. The current XML 
Encryption Syntax and Processing Specification [1] has a section
that includes the XML-ENC MIME type registration [2]. I believe that this
is the registration request that was sent at the time.

Unless there are some objections in this mailing list, I propose 
we reuse the same request. Let's say that if we don't hear any complain
by Friday EOB, let's do it.

One question, though. Will be need to edit the spec to say that
this is the MIME type or add an errata once it is accepted?

Ok, if there is no additional feedback, let's do this on Monday or
earlier if we get some kind of approval here :)
