The security and interoperability sections must point out that the re-
gistration fails to comply with the RFC 3023 SHOULD-level requirement
for types using the "+xml" convention to have an optional charset para-
meter and its omission permits construction of entities that carry the
parameter that will be processed differently by different components of
a system with possibly harmful or otherwise surprising results.

This appears to be incorrect; the W3C procedure requires ietf-types
review to occur as part of a Last Call announcement. However, this
appears to be the first mention of this type on ietf-types and the
document is already past the Last Call stage.

This reads as if public-tt at is Glenn Adams' email address which
it is not.
