Hi,

  http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-hoschka-smil-media-type-12.txt
is a bit old by now, but I don't think application/smil should be COMMON
as it does not use the +xml convention for XML media types. Instead, it
should be OBSOLETE and application/smil+xml, defined in the same draft,
should be used instead.

http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/PR-SMIL2-20050927/ only has application/smil
(which is not currently registered), it should use application/smil+xml
and point out that application/smil is obsolete, assuming that the +xml
version will be registered in the not too distant future.

regards,
