     A Media Type Structured Syntax Suffix for JSON Text Sequences
                     draft-wilde-json-seq-suffix-03

Abstract

   Structured Syntax Suffixes for media types allow other media types to
   build on them and make it explicit that they are built on an existing
   media type as their foundation.  This specification defines and
   registers "+json-seq" as a structured syntax suffix for JSON Text
   Sequences.

1.  Introduction

   Media Type Structured Syntax Suffixes [RFC6838] were introduced as a
   way for a media type to signal that it is based on another media type
   as its foundation.  Some structured syntax suffixes were registered
   initially [RFC6839], including "+json" for the widely popular JSON
   Format [RFC7159].

   JSON Text Sequences [RFC7464] is a recent specification in the JSON
   space that defines how a sequence of multiple JSON texts can be
   represented in one representation.  This document defines and
   registers the "+json-seq" structured syntax suffix in the Structured
   Syntax Suffix Registry.

2.  Terminology

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

3.  The "+json-seq" Structured Syntax Suffix

   The use case for the "+json-seq" structured syntax suffix is the same
   as for "+json": It SHOULD be used by media types when parsing the
   JSON Text Sequence of a media type leads to a meaningful result, by
