Internet-Draft           application/stream+json            October 2012

1.  Introduction

   Activity Streams [asms] is a data format for "the serialization of a
   stream of social activities using the JSON format" [RFC4627].
   Version 1.0 of the specification was published in May of 2011 by the
   Activity Streams Working Group (<http://activitystrea.ms>) and has
   been implemented in a broad range of applications.

   This specification defines and registers the "application/
   stream+json" Content Type to represent JSON document resources that
   conform to the JSON Activity Streams Version 1.0 Specification
   [asms].

2.  IANA Considerations

   This specification registers the application/stream+json MIME Media
   Type:

      Type name: application
      Subtype name: stream+json
      Required parameters: None
      Optional parameters: "charset" : Specifies the character set
      encoding.  If not specified, a default of "UTF-8" is assumed.
      Encoding considerations: Resources that use the "application/
      stream+json" media type are required to conform to the
      "application/json" Media Type and are therefore subject to the
      same encoding considerations specified in Section 6 [RFC4627].
      Security considerations: As defined in this specification
      Published specification: This specification.
      Applications that use this media type: JSON Activity Streams are
      implemented by a wide range of existing applications.

3.  Security Considerations

   discussed in Section 11 of [asms].
