Hi Rob and Hank
The chair of WG II is Bernard Dost. I am cc'ing Bernard on this
email. He would be the best FDSN contact for this issue.
IRIS can remain involved in the conversation.

Has any convention been suggested or request to IANA been made?
application/vnd.iris.mseed *.msd, *.sd
I'm not familiar with how complicated the IANA approval process is,
perhaps more that it is worth for official publication -- and IRIS
