1.  Introduction

   This document updates RESTCONF [RFC8040] in order to support the
   Network Management Datastore Architecture (NMDA) defined in
   [I-D.ietf-netmod-revised-datastores].

   The solution presented in this document is backwards compatible with
   [RFC8040].  This is achieved by it only adding new top-level
   resources, and thereby leaving the semantics of all existing
   resources alone.

2.  Requirements Language

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "NOT RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and
   "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in BCP
   14 [RFC2119] [RFC8174] when, and only when, they appear in all
   capitals, as shown here.

3.  Summary of Updates to RFC 8040

   This document updates [RFC8040] in the following ways:

   o  Adds new top-level resource "/ds".

   o  Adds new query parameter "with-origin".

   o  Section 3.5.4, Paragraph 3 doesn't apply for <operational>.
