Re: Media Type registration form

I would like to see a few additions to the MIME media type
registration form.

My first proposal is to have a new section on "Interchange
considerations:" for discussing versioning problems, byte order
problems, gateway problems for things like application/mac-binhex40,

I like the idea.  The problem is in getting people to understand what
it is.  People have enough trouble understanding security
considerations.  That doesn't mean I'm opposed to having that section,
just that it makes it more difficult on someone proposing a new type.
(maybe this section could be optional?)

Magic Number: {length, bytes}
File extension(s) in common use: {in order by preference}
Macintosh File Type code: {4 octets}

I like these too.
