Declaration of MIME types are out of the scope of the standard. And application/warc and application/warc-fields are still not registered as official MIME types.
==> there should be an iipc discussion on how to move forward with this.

Is section 8 deleted from the 1.2 standard? In addition to these MIME types not being registered, I just noticed this inconsistency about whether the WARC-Type of warcinfo and metadata SHALL BE, MAY, or is recommended to be application/warc-fields (quoting from 1.1 standard)

 section 6.2 'warcinfo'
   The format of this descriptive record block may vary, though the use of the "application/warc-fields" content-type is recommended.
 section 6.6 'metadata'
   The "application/warc-fields" format may be used
 section 8
   The MIME type of warcinfo records, WARC metadata records, and potentially other records types in the future, shall be application/warc-fields.
