In particular, RFC 1737 states that "URC is a set of meta-level information about a resource. Some examples of such meta-information are: owner, encoding, access restrictions (perhaps for particular instances), cost."
The effort to standardize URCs within the IETF faltered after its initial introduction. The need for standard metadata description of a Resource has been solved by various technologies such as Resource Description Framework and meta tags.
