Not much point in striking the appendix if we're not touching it, but it's
not important either way. The IANA reg is a stand-alone thing and we can
update that without affecting the OASIS portion. IOW, formally speaking,
those MIME types are not part of SAML 2.0. At least that's the implication
of the feedback we got.

I assume so, I didn't go looking for the particular section. It's the only
part that references the MIME type, AFAIK.

There's essentially no use of that stuff AFAIK, but I do have code deployed
that produces that MIME type and don't really want to see the type name
