Subject: Alignment with Web Services Security


The Web Services Security 1.0 specs are in OASIS member review for 
becoming an OASIS standard
(see announcement below from earlier this month).

I would like to propose that we consider the issue of whether we should 
align V3 with the WSS

I have read the specs and have found one small but significant issue for 
its use by us.

Section 4 of the The " Web Services Security: SOAP Message Security 1.0" 
specifies wsu:Id as an xsd:ID type. This prevents the possibility of 
using URI or UUID as an id.
This is an unfortunate restriction because many systems (including ebXML 
Registry) use urn:uuid based ids and also other
URNs as ids.

Recall that we ran into this exact situation in ebXML Registry specs and 
decided to change the type of our id attribute
to string from xsd:ID.

This issue need to be addressed IMO by the WSS TC in order for us to use 
the WSS specs.
If it were addressed then I would be in favour of aliging with this spec 
for ebXML Registry version 3.
