Subject: Registration of IBM MO:DCA-P MIME Type

     Tree:  vendor

     MIME media type name: application

     MIME subtype name: vnd.ibm.modcap

     Required parameters: none

     Optional parameters: none

     Encoding considerations: MO:DCA-P carries text, image,
       and graphics data objects, therefore the data is a
       mixture of binary data and character data.
       The recommended content-transfer-encoding is base64.

     Security considerations: MO:DCA-P is an architected
       specification of final-form presentation data. It is
       not a programming language, does not contain any
       file operators, and therefore cannot corrupt a
       receiver's file system or programming environment.
       MO:DCA and Mixed Object Document Content Architecture
       are trademarks of the IBM Corporation.

     Interoperability considerations: MO:DCA-P defines
       interchange sets to support interoperability.
       Currently defined sets are Interchange Set 1 (IS/1)
       and Interchange Set 2 (IS/2).
