This document describes the Concise Binary Object Representation
(CBOR) Sequence format and associated media type
"application/cbor-seq".  A CBOR Sequence consists of any number of
encoded CBOR data items, simply concatenated in sequence.

Structured syntax suffixes for media types allow other media types to
build on them and make it explicit that they are built on an existing
media type as their foundation.  This specification defines and
registers "+cbor-seq" as a structured syntax suffix for CBOR

This document is a product of the Concise Binary Object Representation Maintenance and Extensions Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
