Hi all,

I'm currently in the process of getting these two mime types registered - a blog post introducing the mime type is available at http://nocarrier.co.uk/2012/04/the-error-hypermedia-type/ and the standard itself is available at https://github.com/blongden/vnd.error

I'm looking for any feedback you may have to offer at this stage (changes, enhancements etc). The registration is as follows (I have only included the xml variant here - the json one has a sub mimetype name of vnd.error+json - otherwise the registration is identical).

Name : Ben Longden

Email : ben@nocarrier.co.uk

MIME media type name : Application

MIME subtype name : Vendor Tree - vnd.error+xml

Required parameters : None

Optional parameters : None

Encoding considerations : binary

Security considerations : 
This media type provides a read only representation of an error state in an application. It does not contain any executable content. No privacy or integrity protection is provided; if either is needed they must be provided by some external service.

Interoperability considerations : None

Published specification :  https://github.com/blongden/vnd.error

Applications which use this media : None

Additional information :
1. Magic number(s) : N/A
2. File extension(s) : N/A
3. Macintosh file type code : N/A
4. Object Identifiers: N/A

Person to contact for further information :
1. Name : Ben Longden
2. Email : ben@nocarrier.co.uk

Intended usage : Common
Author/Change controller : Ben Longden
