Subject: RE: [security-services] SAML extensions example

This would be a good plan since XTAML is now planned to become WS-TrustAxiom
which is built on the WS-TrustAssertionFramework and not the SAML framework.
There is no difference between the two except that WS-TrustFramework does
not define any application statements at all. This seems a better approach
in the light of what the XACML people did and the fact that folk who are
using XrML, Semantic Web etc are likely to want a more neutral statement
container than is provided by SAML.

This also works better in the case that SAML ends up converging with the
common framework at a later date. XTAML is not logically an extension of the
SAML application, but Liberty is.

Needless to say, at the time I was writing that stuff there was no liberty.
