This document describes a CBOR tag for providing type information to CBOR data. Unlike the native CBOR tagging scheme which builds on integers in a IANA registry, this specification supports arbitrary type identifiers, including using URLs. The latter enable type identifiers to potentially point to associated human readable definitions as well.
