I just wanted to speak up on this, since you and Eliot have both done
Only IANA can use "-//IANA//". Only Netscape can use "+//IDN
netscape.com//". The "owner" in the "owner identifier" is *the owner
of the FPI*, not the owner of the resource.
You can create -//Toby Speight//NOTATION MIME image/gif//, but you may
not create -//IANA//NOTATION MIME image/gif//. If IANA creates the
public identifier for their resource, you may use it, but you may not
infringe on their namespace.
DeRose and Durand, in _Making Hypermedia Work_, used their ISBN to
create FPIs for a variety of notations, and donated those FPIs to the
public domain. I recommend using these if the creator of the resource
hasn't designated an FPI of their own.
