None of them is registered with IANA, although they all use the IETF 
branch. The draft is clear that image/jp2 is the mime type to use for 
all currently defined JPEG2000 still image modes, while reserving i/jpx 
for further extensions that warrant a new mime type. Plus some movie 
modes. I don't know why such an easy thing as a mime type registration 
hasn't been pursued to the end, but I asked on ietf-types at 
about them (answer pending).


It has become fashionable in the post Cold War world to label
opponents as terrorists [...]. By doing so, the authorities instill
within society a culture of fear, leading people to accept that their
rights (and the rights of others) be trampled on for the sake of the
common good. In other words, it justifies the loss of privacy and a
state of surveillance they would otherwise not accept. Both communism
and fascism were examples of this technique used to perfection.
