Hi,

For immediate review (today if possible):

  ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/pmp/iana/langxps-20091102.txt

Mike Fenelon, Michael Sweet, and I have had a productive
offline conversation this last week about this.

Mike Fenelon proposed two enums and this justification:

"The OpenXPS spec is already complete and it does have
differences from the MS spec.  Since the 2 specifications/types
have completely different namespaces I think it is pretty
important to have 2 definitions.

There are already a number of devices that support the current
specification: langXPS.  And all Windows 7 clients will generate
this format. And MS and others have committed to supporting
the new OpenXPS spec also. It is very important to know which."

Cheers,
