I think writing a short draft with the registration would be the best

Would that draft simply be a means of conveying the type to the IESG, or
would it need to be published as an RFC?

The latter. Unless you can convince IESG that Sieve WG is another SDO ;-).

Multiple RFCs just registering MIME types were reviewed/approved by IESG in the last year.

Unless you want to revise RFC 5784?

I'd rather not, but I'd also rather not publish an RFC just to do this
registration. So if publiction is needed it seems to me that a revision
would have the advantage of getting all the info in one place.

Your choice really.
