RE: Fwd: Last Call: XML Media Types to Proposed Standard

I slightly changed Larry's wording, since some external parsed 
entities are well-formed XML documents and are also used as 
XML documents.
    application/xml and text/xml MUST NOT be used for "external DTD
    subsets" and "external parameter entities", and MUST NOT be used for
    "external parsed entities" unless they are also well-formed "document
    entities" and used as such.  Note that RFC2376 (obsoleted) allowed
    this usage, although in practice it is likely to be rare.

I am surprised to hear that this slight change requires four week
review again.  But I will follow your instruction.
