Subject: RE: Requesting an Assertion by ID


Your comment is not correct. Please take a look at
element <Request> in draft-sstc-schema-protocol-15. 
The RequestType allows a query to specify either 
an assertionID (lookup) or a Query element. The former
corresponds to looking up an assertion by its ID.
