1. Introduction

   This document defines a new media type for TimeStampedData envelopes.
   A TimeStampedData envelope, described in [RFC5544], binds a file with
   one or more time-stamp tokens obtained for that file.  A media type
   registration, lacking in [RFC5544], enhances shareability.

2. Registration

   Type name: application

   Subtype name: timestamped-data

   Required parameters: none

   Optional parameters: none

   Encoding considerations: binary

   Security considerations:

      See the Security considerations in the published specification.

   Interoperability considerations: none

   Published specification: RFC 5544

   Applications which use this media type:

      Any application that exchanges TimeStampedData envelopes over a
      MIME-based transport and possibly processes them, either directly
      or via external handlers or viewers. Such applications may be, for
