Subject: RE: [security-services] Groups - sstc-saml-conform-1[1].1-draft-04.doc uploaded

Hi Prateek,

I'm fine with most of the changes you made to the conformance spec, but I
don't really agree with the following one: "For convenience, we will refer
to a SAML request as an Authentication, Attribute, AuthorizationDecision,
IDReference or Artifact query with the obvious meaning."  

While this is fine for authn, attributes, and authz decision queries, I
don't think ID references and Artifact should be in the list.  They are
specific types of "requests", not queries".  Eve had actually made a number
of edits in draft-02 as a result of some committee and list discussion to
remove some of the exact phrasing you put back in.  This was done in order
to be more precise.

I also noticed you added 2 additional lines (4 new test cases) to table 1.
While this might actually be the right types of changes to make, I think the
last call process requires that we should have discussed the proposed
changes on the list and confirm them at a meeting before making the changes.
I personally thought they were a bit more than editorial since they added
test cases.  Note that I'm actually fine with the first of these (Assertion
ID Reference producer and consumer), but the other one (assertion artifact)
seems to be somewhat redundant with the Browser/artifact Profile test cases
which address that request, although some clarifying text would be useful in
that one also. 

I'll add this to the agenda for discussion at tomorrow's meeting.
