Technical Summary
 
This document describes a media type (application/rdf+xml) for use
with the XML serialization of the Resource Description Framework
(RDF).  RDF is a language designed to support the Semantic Web, by
facilitating resource description and data exchange on the Web.  RDF
provides common structures that can be used for interoperable data
exchange and follows the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) design
principles of interoperability, evolution, and decentralization.

Protocol Quality

that there are multiple producers of data served as application/rdf+xml.
