Hypermedia APIs


I’ve recently read RESTful Web APIs in which the authors (who I think may influence the industry, because they wrote a book years ago which was a bible at the time) argue the need for (standardized where possible) hypermedia and semantic profiles in APIs in order to carry the semantics of the application domain and thus facilitate client app development and allow the API to evolve with minimised impact on the clients. I wonder if RAML can help in this sphere?
