Isn't this just json and xml? If we need specific media types, I think
it would be two.

In theory, it would be even nicer if the document would be written in
such a way that it works with any (future) encoding. The way things
are defined today, by referring to responses of specific protocol
operations, is a bit odd. Does it matter whether the XML is returned
by a NETCONF <get-data> or RESTCONF/HTTP GET? Ideally, the format of
the instance files would be coming out of the data encoding
specifications (plus the architectural framework of datastores).
