Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-3030) Public Comment:Comments on Digital Signatures in ODF 1.2 Part 3

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3030?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=21544#action_21544 ] 

David LeBlanc commented on OFFICE-3030:

There are 3 issues at question here:

1) Why don't we use the XMLDSig 1.1 spec instead of 1.0?

1.1 is in draft form, and we don't want a published specification to depend on a draft.
Also, 1.1 is a breaking change to 1.0 - a 1.1 parser won't parse a 1.1 signature, and there are 1.0 elements that are no longer considered valid. When 1.1 moves out of draft, it would be a substantial change.

2) Why don't we use XML signature properties?

This is also in draft form, and we don't want to depend on a draft. In addition, we don't actually need it for anything but the signing time, and that's covered by XAdES already. There's also nothing preventing an implementer from using these extensions if they liked - it wouldn't break an existing parser.

3) Why not use the RELAX NG schemas?

I don't have an informed opinion on this, and don't see what it does for us.
