Technical Summary This document defines procedures for the specification and registration of media types for use in MIME and other Internet protocols. Combined with "Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME) Part Four: Registration Procedures (draft-freed-mime-p4), this draft obsoletes RFC 2048 if approved. Working Group Summary This document is the work of individual submitters. It was subjected to MIME-types review, but it is has not been reviewed by an IETF working group. MIME-type review comments have been incorporated into the document. Most IETF last call comments were also incorporated into the document, but one of the Last Call comments, explicitly allowing text subtypes to be treated differently in the restricted use case, was not accepted. There was rough consensus to support this decision. Protocol Quality Ted Hardie and Scott Hollenbeck have reviewed this specification for the IESG.
