Your draft mentions explicitly that an object with
Content-Disposition: form-data can have the following

   text/plain and other subtypes to text/

It is not quite clear whether any other content-types can be included.

Question 1: Can multipart/form-data be recursively embedded
inside multipart/form-data?

Question 2: Can application/x-url-encoded be embedded
inside application/form-data?

Question 3: Can objects of Content-Type: Message/rfc822 or
Content-Type: Message/http be embedded inside application/form-data?
If yes, perhaps one should add

   If a complete e-mail message is to be returned, the
   "Content-Type: Message/rfc822" can be embedded within


   If a complete message is to be returned, the
   "Content-Type: Message" can be embedded within

Your draft says:

   If the contents of a
   file are returned via filling out a form, then the file input is
   identified as the appropriate media type, if known, or
   "application/octet-stream". If multiple files are to be returned as
   the result of a single form entry, they should be represented as a
   "multipart/mixed" part embedded within the "multipart/form-data".

Maybe one should here add:

   If a HTML document including inline objects like images or
   applets is to be returned as the result of a single form
   entry, they should be represented as a "multipart/related"
   part embedded within the "multipart/form-data". Also other
   submodes to multipart may be embedded within the "multipart/

If this is added, references should maybe be added to RFC 2110 or
to RFC 2110, 2111 and 2112.
