I am interesting in axiomatic justifications for concepts in information theory. I have found many axiomatizations for Shannon's entropy and for the Kullback-Leibler divergence, as well as their variations (for some examples, see this survey or these books: 1, 2). However, I have not found any results directly for the mutual information.

Are there any results that show that some intuitive properties uniquely characterize the mutual information of a joint distribution of two random variables?
