Subject: Re: [security-services] Core-08 is now available

Just a quick note on this point before I catch up on my other dozens of 
unread SSTC messages...  ArtifactRequest made more sense when it was 
defined side-by-side with AssertionIDRequest, which I had renamed thusly 
after seeing AssertionRequest and ArtifactRequest side by side and 
wanting to make them more consistent.  The idea was that ArtifactRequest 
was a request for an assertion by means of an artifact, whereas 
AssertionIDRequest was a request for an assertion by means of an ID (or 
so went my tortured renaming logic in order to leave the existing names 
mostly undisturbed).  But given the confusion/comments on this point, 
and given our repositioning of ArtifactRequest as a protocol binding 
that returns a protocol message and not a mere assertion, renaming of 
ArtifactRequest is in order.
