Subject: RE: [office] Registering OpenDocument Database MIME type and File Name Extensions at IANA - (ODF 1.2 draft 7-5, Appendix C)

We didn't discuss this on the call, but it seems like a reasonable thing to
do, especially since the Appendix is non-normative (and probably belongs in
the Packaging document when that is ready).

Also, you might consider correcting the typical filename extension for 
application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.text-master from ".otm" to ".odm" since
.odm is in use (at least by OO.o).  See

Subject: [office] Registering OpenDocument Database MIME type and File Name
Extensions at IANA - (ODF 1.2 draft 7-5, Appendix C)

In the latest public draft of the ODF 1.2 specification the MIME
type and file name extension of the ODF Database document is missing in 
the Appendix C, as the MIME type has not been registered at IANA.

Nevertheless the schema for database has already been defined in the 
draft (e.g. <office:database>).

If there are no objects from the TC, I would volunteer to register the 
new MIME type for OpenDocument Database document with 
"application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.database" and the suffix "odb" next 
week after the TC call.
