The new charset material looks fine to me.

A few additional comments, all fairly minor.

In section 3, there are a couple of places where it says "The media types
application/xml and text/xml MUST NOT be used". Would it make sense to
include the +xml suffix as something that MUST NOT be used?

The material at the end of Section 9.2 is arguably a little too important
to relegate to an example. The obvious place to move it would be to Section
3.2.

Ther probably should be a pointer at the end of Section 3.6 to the examples
in Section 9.

There's a missing period on the last sentence of Section 9.8.

The IANA Considerations in Section 10 need to list the types being registered
here.

That's it!
