Document Shepherd Writeup for draft-ietf-dispatch-javascript-mjs

1. Summary

Barry Leiba is the document shepherd; Alexey Melnikov is the responsible AD.

This document updates the ECMAscript/javascript Media Types
registrations, updating RFC 4329.  An Informational document in the IETF
stream is the appropriate way to handle this update.

2. Review and Consensus

The document is unremarkable and straightforward, so there is no surprise
that only a few people were interested in discussing it.  The main issues
of discussion were the addition of the ".mjs" file extension and the fact
that the document updates 15 OBSOLETE registrations.  The reason for
making the update is to ensure that it's clear which media types that
were used from time to time are no longer in use, and which one
(text/javascript) is.

The document is desired by ECMA TC39, and was brought to us by one of
their members.  The document is changing the registrations in part to
reflect how the relevant media types are actually being used (for
example, making "text/javascript" COMMON rather than OBSOLETE), and in
part to add parameters that are desired by implementors (the "goal"
parameter and the ".mjs" file extension).

3. Intellectual Property

The document authors are in full conformance with BCPs 78 and 79, and
there are no IPR disclosures on the document.

4. Other Points

At this writing, there is an unused reference to RFC 3023.  It will be
used or removed before publication.

Essentially, the whole document is about IANA Considerations, and the
IANA Considerations section is clear, if lengthy, specifying new
registration templates for 16 Media Types registrations.  No new
registries are created.
