I don't care.  When I did editorial stuff on the bindings doc, I just 
picked the first one that occurred and tried to standardize on it.  I may 
have missed some (but I did check back with the bindings doc when working 
on references to profiles in other specs!).

The URI issue is perhaps trickier than it sounds.  You should probably use 
the URI for the specific bindings-0n doc, rather than the overall TC 
website, so that the version of the profile gets locked down.

You mean security-services-comment, right?  Outsiders can't post to the 
regular TC list.
