The IESG has received a request from the Applications Area Working Group
WG (appsawg) to consider the following document:
- 'XML Media Types'
  <draft-ietf-appsawg-xml-mediatypes-09.txt> as Proposed Standard

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits
final comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the mailing lists by 2014-03-17. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to instead. In either case, please retain the
beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.


   This specification standardizes three media types -- application/xml,
   application/xml-external-parsed-entity, and application/xml-dtd --
   for use in exchanging network entities that are related to the
   Extensible Markup Language (XML) while defining text/xml and text/
   xml-external-parsed-entity as aliases for the respective application/
   types.  This specification also standardizes the '+xml' suffix for
   naming media types outside of these five types when those media types
   represent XML MIME entities.

Note that this document has normative references to eight W3C documents,
as well as two Informational RFCs.  The Informational RFCs are:
1. RFC 2781, "UTF-16, an encoding of ISO 10646"
2. RFC 6839, "Additional Media Type Structured Syntax Suffixes"

Both of those documents should be added to the downref registry ( after this last
call completes.
