Zstandard, or "zstd" (pronounced "zee standard"), is a data
compression mechanism. This document describes the mechanism, and
registers a media type to be used when transporting zstd-compressed
via Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME), as well as
a new HTTP Content Coding.
2. Review and Consensus
This is not a product of an IETF WG.
There are multiple implementations of "zstd" compression algorithm, see <http://facebook.github.io/zstd/>
See also Section 5 of the draft.
3. Intellectual Property

The document is Informational, so there are no DownRefs.
IANA Considerations are clear.
