You incorrectly list 'charset' as required parameter, it should be
optional. I believe it is customary to specify the leading '.' in the
file name extension. Could you explain why you are using .xml instead
of some other extension, or none? I think it would be good to follow
the RFC 4288 template more closely, e.g., use "Magic number(s)" with
the trailing "(s)", write "limited use" in all-uppercase, etc. I don't
think the reference to RFC 3023 is useful in its current form, but I'd
have to check what other +xml type registrations do to recommend some-
thing better.
