>Internet technical specifications often need to define a format syntax and 
>are free to employ whatever notation their authors deem useful.  Over the 
>years, a modified version of Backus-Naur Form (BNF), called Augmented BNF 
>(ABNF), has been popular among many Internet specifications.  It balances 
>compactness and simplicity, with reasonable representational power.  In the
>early days of the Arpanet, each specification contained its own definition 
>of ABNF.  This included the email specifications, RFC733 and then RFC822 
>which have come to be the common citations for defining ABNF.  The current 
>document separates out that definition, to permit selective reference.  
>Predictably, it also provides some enhancements.
