         Glass to Glass Internet Ecosystem URI and S-NAPTR Use
                  draft-daigle-deen-ggie-uri-snaptr-00

Abstract

   This document defines the URI scheme "median" for "media networks" as
   defined in the Glass to Glass Internet Ecosystem work, as well as the
   necessary components to resolve median URIs using the S-NAPTR system.

1.  Terminology

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

2.  Introduction

   This document specifies the "median" URI scheme for the Glass to
   Glass Internet Ecosystem (GGIE -- see [I-D.deen-daigle-ggie]) media
   objects, as well as its use of S-NAPTR ([RFC3958]) to find Media
   Address Resolution Service (MARS -- to be described in a future
   Internet-Draft) servers for a given median URI.

   N.B.: there are significant design decisions still under discussion
   for the overall GGIE technology approach.  Depending on the outcome
   of those discussions -- e.g., on whether or how to determine the
   equivalence between two media objects -- the approach proposed in
   this document may be changed significantly.  Consider the use of
   S-NAPTR and domain names as placeholder proposals.

3.  The role and purpose of the median URI

   The median URI scheme is used to find one or more Media Encoding
   Network (MEN) instances for a given media object, within the domain
   of a particular video distributor.  (For a discussion of MEN, see the
   DASH MPEG MEN definition in [I-D.deen-naik-ggie-men-mpeg-dash]).
