1.  Introduction

   The Structured Query Language (SQL) has been in use for over 30 years
   with various types of database technologies.  However, there is no
   current media type registered for SQL.  Therefore, this document
   seeks to formally register the application/sql media type to be used
   for SQL with IANA.

2.  Conventions Used in This Document

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119] when they
   appear in ALL CAPS.  These words may also appear in this document in
   lower case as plain English words, absent their normative meanings.

3.  Media Type Registration Application

   This section provides the media type registration application for
   this media type (see [RFC6838], Section 5.6)

   Type name: application

   Subtype name: sql

   Required parameters: N/A

   Optional parameters:

      "charset" - indicates the character set to be used.  When not
      specified, a default value MUST NOT be assumed.

      Implementators should be aware that SQL may carry character set
      information in-band.  In such cases, the "charset" parameter
      SHOULD NOT be used.  In cases, where no character information is
      supplied in-band, implementors SHOULD use the "charset" parameter,
      if possible.

   Encoding considerations:

      If the "charset" parameter is used, the corresponding 7-bit, 8-bit
      or binary encoding may be used.  If the "charset" parameter is not
