I would like to see my "Points to Make..." incorporated. That we we can say the Demo is not about Web Services, but SAML supports many environments, including Web Services.

I don't understand. Did you mean some other word than "tangent"?

It is now a committee specification. This is the point of implementation. Real product have been announced and are available for purchase (including ours) The demo shows that they really can interoperate, this is not a paper spec. IMO that is what customers want.

Why not?

I vote for Interop Demo or Interop Demonstration

We can set this up during the weekend. Some people (like me) won't have much to do.
