Short answer: out of scope.

Long answer: this requires a common understanding of what multivalued 
properties are, and how they are serialized.

A proposal was contained in a draft of what later was published as RFC 
4316, see 
Back when we discussed this, there was a preference of keeping things 
simple, and so it was removed from subsequent drafts.

That being said, I know that the proposal was implemented both by SAP 
and Xythos (although likely in different namespaces). I would be happy 
to resurrect that part of the spec as a separate activity, but today I 
wouldn't be able to update the SAP implementation anymore.
