2. Submission: candidate OGC WMTS Simple Profile (OGC 13-082)


1. Requirement: General

2. Implementation Specification Section number: 7.5

3. Criticality: Minor

4. Comments/justifications for changes:

Section 7.5 proposes a composite JPEG/PNG format whose file extension is
"" (the empty string) and whose advertised MIME type is "image/jpeg,
image/png".  A composite JPEG/PNG format is a very good idea.  However
"image/jpeg, image/png" is not a valid MIME type.  The <Format> field
that this goes into is of type ows:MimeType, so for this to be clean,
an actual valid MIME-type string must be chosen.  CubeWerx uses the
MIME type "image/x-jpegorpng" for this purpose.  Also, I think an actual
non-empty file extension woulds be wise.  CubeWerx uses ".jop".
