A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts
This draft is a work item of the Content Negotiation Working Group of
the IETF.

	Title		: Media Feature Tag Registration Procedure
	Author(s)	: T. Hardie, K. Holtman, A. Mutz
	Filename	: draft-ietf-conneg-feature-reg-03.txt
	Pages		: 9
	Date		: 28-Jul-98
  Recent Internet applications, such as the World Wide Web, tie
  together a great diversity in data formats, client and server
  platforms, and communities.  This has created a need for media
  feature descriptions and negotiation mechanisms in order to identify
  and reconcile the form of information to the capabilities and
  preferences of the parties involved.
  Extensible media feature identification and negotiation mechanisms
  require a common vocabulary in order to positively identify media
  features.  A registration process and authority for media features
  is defined with the intent of sharing this vocabulary between
  communicating parties. In addition, a URI tree is defined to enable
  sharing of media feature definitions without registration.
  This document defines a registration procedure which uses the
  Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) as a central registry for
  the media feature vocabulary.
