I was looking through draft-ietf-822ext-mime-reg-02.txt with regard to the character set registration issue. First, a typographical comment: Section 5.2.1 refers to a four week period for review. Section 5.2.2 refers to a two week period for review. Which of these is correct?

Second, a procedural question: After this draft becomes an RFC, will the currently existing character sets that appear in the Assigned Numbers RFC be required to go through the review? As I remember, many of them were registered en masse a long time ago, and most of them are useless for (i.e. unrecognized by any) MIME application. I would hope that such a house cleaning occurs.
