Technical Summary
 
  Abstract Syntax Notation One defines a general
   framework for annotating types in an ASN.1 specification with
   encoding instructions that alter how values of those types
   are encoded according to ASN.1 encoding rules.  This document defines
   the supporting notation for encoding instructions that apply to the
   Generic String Encoding Rules (GSER), and in particular
   defines an encoding instruction, the CHOICE-OF-STRINGS encoding
   instruction, to provide a machine-processable representation for the
   declaration of a GSER ChoiceOfStrings type.
