Subject: RE: New Name !

Are you seriously proposing SexML? ;-)

The objection to "Security Services" is that many existing and future XML
Security services fall outside of our scope. Examples include: XML
signatures, XKMS and XML encryption. It also seems odd that some argue that
"Authentication" is too broad, while endorsing "Security" which is even more

I think I speak for a number of people in saying that my major concern is
that there be a "new" name, so as to indicate to the world we are engaged in
an open process that is beginning with a blank piece of paper, not
rubberstamping something one of my competitors invented. I am sorry this is
so politicized, but we are not responsible for that.
