I just noticed this media type application on an IETF list.   I haven't 
looking into it.  Do we know about JRD and how it compares to JSON-LD?

Barry Leiba indicated that we should register the a media type for the
resource representation defined in
http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-appsawg-webfinger called the JSON
Resource Descriptor (JRD).

I am sending this for your review and comments back as we are working to
finalize the draft.

I have not completed a template for application types before and I see there
are a few new things in the template, so please do let me know if there is
anything that needs clarification or should be changed.



Type name: application

Subtype name: jrd+json

Required parameters: N/A

Optional parameters: N/A
   "charset" - Indicates the character set used to encode the JSON Resource
   Descriptor.  If absent, UTF-8 is assumed.

Encoding considerations: 8bit

Security considerations:
   The JSON Resource Descriptor (JRD) is a JavaScript Object Notation (JSON)
   object.  It is a text format that must be parsed by entities that wish to
   utilize the format.  Depending on the language and mechanism used to parse
   a JSON object, it is possible for an attacker to inject behavior into a
   program.  Therefore, care must be taken to properly parse a received JRD
   ensure that only a valid JSON object is present and that no JavaScript
code is
   injected or executed unexpectedly.

Interoperability considerations:
   This media type is a JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) object and can be
   consumed by any software application that can consume JSON objects.

Published specification: RFC QQQ

Applications that use this media type: WebFinger

Fragment identifier considerations: N/A

Additional information:
   Deprecated alias names for this type: N/A
   Magic number(s): N/A
   File extension(s): jrd+json
   Macintosh file type code(s): N/A

Person & email address to contact for further information:
   Paul E. Jones <paulej@packetizer.com>

Intended usage: COMMON

Restrictions on usage: N/A

Author: Paul E. Jones <paulej@packetizer.com>

Change controller: Paul E. Jones <paulej@packetizer.com>

Provisional registration? (standards tree only): N/A
