I think not, given the scope of those efforts, but this raises a related question I've been wanting to ask. Obviously there are a substantial number of standardization efforts going on in more or less the same space as ours, namely XML-formatted data objects transfered via any of several transports (HTTP, SMTP, BEEP, etc). One might observe that each of these is approaching security in its own way (or not at all) and conclude that it would be a useful goal of our work to provide XML-based security services for the generic XML-over-foo protocol. I expect, though, that participants in this TC would agree that that is *not* what we're trying to do. Yes? If so we might want to state this as an explicit non-goal in our charter (and no I don't have precise wording at the moment) since I suspect this could be a likely point of confusion, especially given the name of the group. - RL "Bob"
