Re: [xml-dev] Mime type for compound document.

So from other registrations at http://www.w3.org/2002/06/registering-mediatype
it seems there should indeed be a media type for Schematron (supporting Bryan's
guidance, the registrations to date seem to all belong to application
uses of XML
but not data uses).

And the guidance consensus, if there is one, seems to approximate to the outer
namespace being the one which is relevant to the media type. So a Schematron
mix with something else would be read as Schematron (so why not just register
the application/schematron+xml rather than mixed) if Schematron is outermost.
Maybe other mixes would just carry the media type of the other outer namespace
(or application/xml).

Whether folk then wish to use it rather than application/xml is up to them.

Does that seem about right?
