It's the RDDL document:

<quote ref="http://rddl.org/";>
1. Introduction
This document describes the Resource Directory Description Language
(RDDL). A RDDL document, called a Resource Directory, provides a package
of information about some target, including:

      * Human-readable descriptive material about the target.
      * A directory of individual resources related to the target, each
        directory entry containing descriptive material and linked to
        the resource in question.

Yes and I'd like to link to a licence, like most of the web pages do.
