Subject: Possible Errata in saml-profiles-2.0-os
Section 8.1 of SAML 2 Profiles state: The Basic attribute profile specifies simplified, but non-unique, naming of SAML attributes together with attribute values based on the built-in XML Schema data types, eliminating the need for extension schemas to validate syntax. But we later find that: [quote] (1699-70) The schema type of the contents of the <AttributeValue> element MUST be drawn from one of the types defined in Section 3.3 of [Schema2]. [quote] This seems to be in error. Section 3 of [Schema2] defines the "Built-in Datatypes" and Section 3.3 is one specific sub-section within it (defines "Derived Datatypes"). With the current language both "Date" and "anyURI" are excluded; I somehow do not believe this was the original intent. PROPOSAL: replace lines 1699-70 with: The schema type of the contents of the <AttributeValue> element MUST be drawn from one of the types defined in Section 3 of [Schema2].
