Title : Reduced Backus-Naur Form (RBNF) A Syntax Used in Various

Several protocols have been specified using a common variant of the
Backus-Naur Form (BNF) of representing message syntax. However, there
is no formal definition of this version of BNF.
There is value in using the same variant of BNF for the set of
protocols that are commonly used together. This reduces confusion and
Updating existing documents to use some other variant of BNF that is
already formally documented would be a substantial piece of work.
This document provides a formal definition of the variant of BNF that
has been used (that we call Reduced BNF), and makes it available for
use by new protocols.
