1.  Introduction

   The JSON [RFC7159] responses of the Registration Data Access Protocol
   [RFC7483] are officially defined with English prose.  Those
   definitions contain imprecise or ambiguous JSON structures and
   require lengthy, tedious examples in the attempt to offer
   clarification.  The English prose can be difficult for non-native
   English readers, and the examples create their own confusion.

   This document describes the JSON found in RDAP with JSON Content
   Rules [I-D.newton-json-content-rules] (JCR).

   JCR overcomes some of the obstacles of describing JSON with English
   prose, reducing the tediousness of the prose and accompanying lengthy
   examples to understandable data structures.  Additionally, JCR has
   mechanisms which can be used by software developers to create test
   harnesses and technology compatibility kits.

   Though this document describes all of the JSON found in [RFC7483], it
   presents the structures in a different order.  The rules defined here
   use the JCR mixin style of specification, where common structures are
   defined in group rules instead of separately, distinct objects.
