Request for media type review of video/h263-1998 and video/h263-2000

Both types say:

   Encoding considerations:

       This type is only defined for transfer via RTP [RFC3550]

'Encoding considerations' should mention how characters are encoded.
If these types don't contain character data, just say so. If they
do, say how that character data is encoded, or point to where this
is described.

Also, it says:

    Security considerations: See Section 10

This should be changed to "Section 10 of RFC????", to make the
registration template self-contained at least in form. Ideally,
that stuff would be in the template, at least in a shortened form,
because people often do not follow references.

Also, in the first type, the parameter section is really long.
It may be better to take out some of that material and put it
in the actual spec, because it looks more like spec stuff than
like registration stuff.

Regards,   Martin.
