Subject: Base SPML on SAML rather than DSML?

Darran, Gavenraj,
I see a lot of discussion on using DSML as the basis for SPML.  

DSML is one possible starting point (Directories keep User Profiles, etc
--AND-- DSML is supposed to make directories talk to each other).

On the other hand, SAML is supposed to be able to transport all kinds of
"interesting" user profile info among various
sites/companies/applications/etc.  And, given that Project Liberty is
using SAML, and maybe WS-Security will be friendly to SAML, then in all
likelihood SAML will have a much more widespead usage than DSML.

That being the case ... it would be interesting to think about using
SAML as the basis for SPML.

Maybe someone more technical/knowledgeable than me can start a
discussion on this at SPML.
