Subject: RE: [office] [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-3417)NEEDS-DISCUSSION: Public Comment: Comment on ODF v1.2 CD 05 - DocumentSignatures

I seem to still be in JIRA login limbo, working on it...

It may be possible to do it this way, but I don't think its desirable. It opens up the possibility that one signature is valid and the other is not. Or a legacy app might have updated the signature in some way (e.g., add a timestamp), so that one evaluates differently than the other. Trying to communicate that sort of state to the user poses serious difficulties.

Robert Weir  commented on OFFICE-3417:

It is possible to have it both ways and preserve legacy compatibility.

producers : should write the preferred name, but may write the legacy name.  (Might also write both)

consumers: shall check for the preferred name first and use that if it exists, otherwise look for the legacy name

But not sure this is worth the increased complexity.
