Your concern is appreciated, thanks. However, I do clearly say "overview", and 
I believe that your webpage is salient and worth investigating for those folks 
who are wearing hat(s) of non-IETF stds dvlp org(s) and wishing to register 
MIME media types, if only to use as a model for determining and documenting 
the process relative to their non-IETF org.
