I've actually been reading some philosophy of language recently, but I 
still can't figure out what you mean by this.

But actually what I want to express concern about is the word "claims". 
It did appear in SAML 1.1 but only in an odd little corner.  As far as I 
can tell the word has been imported from WSS, but it isn't defined 
anywhere in SAML documents.  I am concerned that it may not mean in SAML 
exactly what WSS means by it.  I would prefer to use a more concrete 
phrase like "the statements in the assertion" rather than defining yet 
another term, but if "claims" is to stay it needs a definition somewhere 
(and not just in the glossary IMHO).
