Yes, I'd agree with this.

Please note that there is one additional IANA consideration that was
specified in Annex B of RFC 2301, on the two values that HAVE been
specified for the TIFF application parameter ("faxbw" and "faxcolor" ). I
have pointed out this omission to Keith Moore, so that IANA hopefully can
finish bringing the image/tiff registry up to date. Also, please note
that RFC 2302 also contains a template for the registration of future TIFF
application parameter values, if they are needed.
