Summary: Ready for publication as a Proposed Standard RFC, but with nits to
consider before publication


Since the string "-etch-" is in the media type, it might be nice to say in the
document where it came from.

I think the text in the interoperability considerations sections of the
registrations could be improved. You mean to talk about unrecognized keys, not
unrecognized key-value pairs. I also think the body of the RFC should have a
very short extensibility section that explicitly says you're doing a similar
thing as 8424 section 4.4 and point to that section.

I am a little uncomfortable with the "Fragment Identification" section (4) of
this document - it feels like a "do what we mean" statement. I don't have text
to suggest. It may well be that it will be dead-obvious to an implementer what
to do, but it makes me uneasy.
