It defines two things mixed together -- a data-serialization format,
and a protocol for exchaning that information.  By comparison, note
how important it is that HTML and HTTP are specified separately
(people ended up using HTTP for a lot more than just HTML, and ended
up using HTML in many non-HTTP environments).

All the best,
