1.  Introduction

   This specification registers an XML-based media type for the
   eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML) that will be
   registered with the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA)
   following the "Media Type Specifications and Registration Procedures"
   [RFC4288].

2.  XACML Media Type application/xacml+xml

   type for the eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML).

2.1.  Media Type Name

   application

2.2.  Subtype Name

   xacml+xml

2.3.  Required Parameters

   none

2.4.  Optional Parameters

   charset: The charset parameter is the same as the charset parameter
   of application/xml [RFC3023].

   version: The version parameter indicates the version of the XACML
   specification.  It can be used for content negotiation when dealing
   with components that support multiple XACML versions.  Its range is
   the range of published XACML versions.  As of this writing that is:
   1.0 [XACML-1], 1.1 [XACML-1.1], 2.0 [XACML-2], and 3.0 [XACML-3].
   These and future version identifiers are of the form x.y, where x and
