I haven't really started testing, so I can't say from the technical point of view.

However, from the "legal" point of view, going to Apple's documentation on UTIs, that page



• The public domain is reserved for common or standard types that are of general use to most applications: [...] UTIs with the public domain are called public identifiers. Currently only Apple can declare public identifiers.

• The dyn domain is reserved for special dynamic identifiers. [...]

• All other domains are available for use by third parties. [...]

So I'm worried by "Currently only Apple can declare public identifiers". Although it's an archive, there's no indication that the page, despite its slightly old-fashioned design, does not contain up-to-date information.

Similarly the wikipedia page



"Apple maintains the public.* domain as a set base data types for all UTIs."

Adam discussed this briefly in his essay


which led him to propose using org.tug.tex instead, IIRC provided TUG accepted "responsability" for the UTI.
