Subject: Re: IANA registration for Media Type application/xliff+xml

Great, thanks for the update!

Hello David,

About an hour ago I received word from IANA (ICANN) that the IESG/IETF final review of the application for media type registration had now passed expert review, and was approved.  So it's published, per references below.  Thanks for your work supplying the technical content for the registration, and for your patience as we worked through the formal review process.

In a couple early versions of the application, your name (as spec lead editor) was included, but I was asked to remove that content.

The XLIFF spec itself at OS level is still referenced multiple times, by URI reference, where you are named as editor:


Best wishes,

Media type name: application

Media subtype name: xliff+xml

Required parameters: N/A

Optional parameters: N/A

Encoding considerations: binary

   Same as encoding considerations of application/xml as specified in 
   RFC 7303, Section 3 "Encoding Considerations"

Security considerations: XLIFF is a format used for localization and 
   translation of textual data, and as such does not itself include 
   facilities for executable content.

   Apart from all of the security considerations described in 
   RFC 7303 Section 10 ("Security Considerations"), XLIFF Version 2.0 
   and higher has the following Security considerations:

   Extensibility: XLIFF permits extensions. Hence it is possible 
   that application xliff+xml may describe content that has security 
   implications beyond those described here.

   Direct external reference mechanisms: An XLIFF document has a 
   number of attributes of the type URI or IRI, all of which may be 
   dereferenced and some of them should be dereferenced. Therefore, 
   the security issues of RFC 3987 Section 8 should be considered. 
   In addition, the contents of resources identified by file: URIs 
   can in some cases be accessed, processed and returned as results.

   More details can be found in the Detailed Security Considerations 
   section of the specification "A.1.1 Detailed Security 

   The XLIFF format does not offer any internal mechanisms to provide 
   privacy, convey trust or verify the integrity of XLIFF documents. 
   If such features are needed varies from case to case. 
   Implementations that will process documents in cases where one or 
   more of these features are required need to implement that outside 
   of the XLIFF format. Transport privacy may for example be provided 
   by SSL/TLS. Storage privacy could be implemented by encrypting the 
   XLIFF content using XML encryption or some other appropriate 
   means. Likewise the trust and integrity checks could be 
   implemented using XML signatures or by some other technology that 
   is appropriate for the particular implementation.

Interoperability considerations: Same as interoperability 
   considerations described in RFC 7303

   Also, interoperability requirements are specified throughout the 
   specification and summarized in its Conformance Section.

Published specification: XLIFF Version 2.1 (OASIS Standard, 
   13-February-2018) at 

Applications which use this media: XLIFF conformant applications, 
   according to the Conformance Section of the specification

Fragment identifier considerations: Generic XML processors won't be 
   able to resolve XLIFF fragment identifiers, as the fragment 
   identification syntax is specific for XLIFF and has been defined 
   in its Fragment Identification section as of csd03/csprd03 of 
   XLIFF Version 2.0;
