(a) proposal concerning attributes in core text and relationship to SAML
Attribute Profiles document:

	(1) The SAML Core document retain a fairly high-level approach
	<samlp:AttributeQuery> and <saml:AttributeDesignator> elements. In
	particular, it should not specify elements/attributes/values which
are 	of interest only to particular communities. 

	We would retain URI-based attribute naming within core and
	also include language explaining how to determine
	identity of <attributedesignators> for this case

	This would also mean removal of <samlp:Resource> 

	(2) Guidance on creating specific attribute profiles be provided in
	separate document (A first cut is available in the most recent draft
of 	the Attribute Profiles for SAML 2.0,
	draft-hughes-mishra-baseline-attributes-03.pdf). This would include
	naming profiles (ValueType attribute), any additional XML attributes
defined 	by the profile, syntax for attribute names, rules for
determining equality of attribute designators.

	(3) Specific attribute profiles of interest to the SAML community be
	to the document. The current document includes definitions of a
X.500/LDAP and DCE UUID profile. 

(b) XACML Attribute Profile Proposal 

	We see value in there being a SAML attribute profile that is
compatible 	with XACML's needs.  Such a profile would in no way
constrain    	application of the more general definition of SAML.

	To this end, we make the following proposal: we would develop a
profile 	for SAML attributes that are to form input to an XACML
decision engine.  
        Such a profile would be progressed under the procedures of the SAML
        but the XACML committee would supply the development effort.  
        Members of the SAML committee (of course) would be expected to
review the profile 
        from the point of view of consistency with the aims of the SAML
committee and to 
        approve it as one of their products.

	There are a number of reasons for proposing this as a SAML (rather
than 	an
	XACML) work item.  The first is that we want to ensure that the SAML
expertise is 
	brought to bear on the topic.  The second is that we expect SAML
	designers to seek guidance amongst the documents of the SAML
committee, 	rather than 
	any other (such as XACML).  The final reason is that
	(obviously) we ARE talking about a profile of the SAML spec., not
the 	XACML spec..

(c)  Review of recently published drafts
