A content media type name sometimes includes partitioned meta-
information distinguished by a structured syntax to permit noting an
attribute of the media as a suffix to the name.  This document
defines several structured syntax suffixes for use with media type
registrations.  In particular, it defines and registers the "+json",
"+ber", "+der", "+fastinfoset", "+wbxml" and "+zip" structured syntax
suffixes, and provides a media type structured syntax suffix
registration form for the "+xml" structured syntax suffix.  This document 
is not an Internet Standards Track specification; it is published for 
informational purposes.

This document is a product of the Applications Area Working Group Working Group of the IETF.
