Don,


during the Application Area Chairs'' meeting in Munich last Wednesday, I
asked Keith to amplify on his request to use MIME types rather than enums.
This resulted in Keith stating that we should see this as a directive from
him in his role as our project advisor.


My interpretation is that it does not seem likely that we will be able to
avoid the MIME-types.
