XML media types under the 'text' top level type are unpopular, it would
probably be a good idea to explain why this does not use 'application'.

Text missing.

This suggests there are no other considerations which is unlikely to be
the case. This should probably say something along the lines of "in
addition to ..."

If there are specific extensions, this should not list "xml" because it
could also be used, there would have to be more specific reasons.
