Hi:

I wanted to get an update on the request I sent in for some Media types
to be registered. 

I am setting up a process to allow different groups within Microsoft to
register their specific types, but I wanted to make sure that these
types are already taken care of,

Please confirm,
Thanks,
-Suki
