RFD mime type question

I am wondering what the meaning of rdf+xml is in the RDF mime-type
application/rdf+xml. Does it refer to

- the idea that there are other possible syntaxes for RDF than XML
  (e.g. ntriples)


- the idea that 'ordinary' XML can be seen as RDF, meaning that RDF can
  some as rdf or xml   (leading to rdf+xml)

Can someone clarify this?
