➢ Only `text/javascript` is not obsolete per https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/scripting.html#scriptingLanguages 

I wonder about the utility of newly registering (or updating the registration) of types that are obsolete.
If there’s significant deployment of names that new implementations need to be aware of, then ‘obsolete’ isn’t the right status; if not, then who would use the new, but obsolete, definition?
