I've been reading through the Webfinger spec, and it uses application/jrd+json in all the examples, and describes the media type it's registering -- but it never says whether or not a server using application/json as a content type should fail or not.I could potentially see some servers wishing to use application/json, so that applications that are used for all kinds of JSON manipulation, like JSONView, could properly pick up on it.

So if I'm writing a client, and I get an application/json Content Type, it should fail? Since the spec doesn't seem to explicitly mandate this, and the content *is* valid JSON, this seems a bit restrictive to me.
