In the IANA review of draft-ietf-core-yang-cbor, the question was raised what allocation range should be used for the content-format number for 


I believe this content-type will be used mostly for less size-sensitive applications, as a name is used for YANG identifiers and not a YANG SID.
So I think we are fine in the range:

   256-9999    IETF Review or IESG Approval

e.g., 260.

Any disagreement (or support)?
