I just discovered in the IANA Registry of MIME Media types, that
'application/ipp' has been registered with a reference to the RFC 2910.
Here is the extract of the Registry:
In this sub-directory is a flat file:
which contains the following entries (... indicates lines that I have
[RFC2045,RFC2046] specifies that Content Types, Content Subtypes, Character
Sets, Access Types, and conversion values for MIME mail will be
assigned and listed by the IANA.
Content Types and Subtypes
Type Subtype Description Reference
---- ------- ----------- ---------
text plain [RFC2646,RFC2046]
application octet-stream [RFC2045,RFC2046]
If you go down to the application sub-directory and click on ipp:
you get just the line text file: See RFC 2910.
We probably do need to send Appendix B from RFC 2910 to IANA as a mail
message following the procedures for registration. Then when bugging on the
application/ipp, the user would get the mail message with all the fields
filled in, rather than just the single-line text message: See RFC 2910.
