Ideally, both (e.g. see http://www.rddl.org/) but there aren't any  
agreed-upon standards; if you want to have something there that SXIP- 
savvy software can read that might be useful; failing anything  
automated, having something human-readable to explain what's going on  
to the puzzled programmer is good citizenship. -Tim
