That section of RFC 7991 says:
2.5.7. "type" Attribute
Specifies the type of the artwork. The value of this attribute is
free text with certain values designated as preferred.
The preferred values for <artwork> types are:
The RFC Series Editor will maintain a complete list of the preferred
values on the RFC Editor web site, and that list is expected to be
updated over time. Thus, a consumer of v3 XML should not cause a
failure when it encounters an unexpected type or no type is
specified. The table will also indicate which type of art can appear
in plain-text output (for example, type="svg" cannot).
