This document describes a Fully-Specified FEC scheme, identified by the FEC Encoding ID 7 (to be determined (tbd)), for Universal Object Delivery using the RaptorQ Forward Error Correction (FEC) Scheme for Object Delivery. This document introduces a new FEC Payload ID, called the Universal Object Symbol Identifier (UOSI), and describes how to use the UOSI together with RaptorQ FEC Scheme to provide simplified and enhanced object delivery capabilities. In particular, flexible and simple support is provided for basic object delivery, and support is also provided for unequal error protection (UEP) object delivery, for bundled object delivery, and for any combination of UEP and bundled object delivery.
