Subject: 1.7 Mimetypes: Extensions?

Section 1.7 defines the mimetype names (e.g. application/vnd.oasis.openoffice.text)
but doesn't define which extension should commonly be used for such documents
(e.g. *.oot, for "oasis openoffice text", *.ood, *.oop, *.oos, *.ooc and *.ooi?)

Once the mimetypes are registered with the IANA this will be part of the
definition of the mimetypes (IIRC), but has this registration be requested already?
If yes, with which extensions?

Or do you think it would be wiser to still use a different extension in each
office suite? In that case I don't see much point in defining a common
mimetype name....
