Subject: RE: New Name ! (A new suggestion)


Leaving aside political sensitivities etc..., Sentry Services sounds like a
dry cleaner  or a provider of bar bouncers to me....
I'm not sure it will automatically conjure up an accurate picture in
peoples' minds.

Sentry Services  Markup Language doesn't appear to be very descriptive of
what is  being attempted. It also would lead one to believe that the
standard was based  only on the 'original' S2ML rather than the joint
effort of the many  participants.

A goal  should be to de-politicize the name from S2ML or AuthXML and
reflect the broader  contributions that are being made.

I  believe that Carlisle is on the right track with "Active XML Credentials
Exchange Specification", which has the intuitive and somewhat appropriate
acronym "AXCES" (pronounced "access").

I  think that the most consensus we could go for at this stage is to change
the  word Security to something more specific.

How  about :

Sentry Services Markup Language?  (S2ML)
