Section 8, p.49-50 says:

MIME Type               or:              MIME type

(multiple instances each)

It should say:

Media Type               or:             media type


The RFC should apply IETF standard terminology.
In this case, it is clear that the RFC does *not* apply to the
context of email, and hence "MIME" should be avoided even more!
Please use the terminology established in RFC 2045 ff. !

Furthermore, Table 3 on page 50 contains a couple of questionable
audio/x-alaw-basic is a private media type;
audio/ms-gsm looks like an IETF tree media subtype,
but it has not been registered with the IANA;
audio/x-wav is also a private media type; I guess it should
better be audio/vnd.wave (RFC 2361)
-- although the IANA apparently has lost
records of this media type registration.
Authors comment: In four years of deployment, no one has run into a real problem in the real world. This is not a standards track RFC.
