Subject: RE: [security-services] A "final" proposal on status codes

The changes made were to make all types into named types, to move certain
data types into attributes and to make the element names unambiguous at the
top level (hence adding Status to everything).

It does not matter much what the coding stye is, but making it consistent
across the spec makes a big difference.

I realised after the post that you were referring to the W3C XMLP list. For
a moment I thought that you were referring to one of the SAML sublists, in
the past we had a lot of them with some confusion at times.
