I was hoping to avoid stuffing the MIME registry with (and making everyone review) lots of useless obsolete templates; the use of OBSOLETE in “Intended use” should only be for previously registered types. Not new (dubious) registrations.

The extra registrations are to match up with the Web specification on accepted MIME types for historical reasons

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?
