> Recent Internet applications, such as the World Wide Web, tie
> together a great diversity in data formats, client and server
> platforms, and communities. This has created a need for content
> feature descriptions and negotiation mechanisms in order to identify
> and reconcile the form of information to the capabilities and
> preferences of the parties involved.
> Extensible content feature identification and negotiation mechanisms
> require a common vocabulary in order to positively identify content
> features. A registration process and authority for content features
> is defined with the intent of sharing this vocabulary between
> communicating parties. In addition, a URI tree is defined to enable
> sharing of content feature definitions without registration.
> This document defines a registration procedure which uses the
> Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) as a central registry for
> the content feature vocabulary.
