Yes. I can't reference it because the only thing posted is the ZIP.

It's in the AS document.

I think it's needless duplication with fewer features. But if I honestly
thought that *anybody* could be won over just by pulling SOAP out of there,
I'd have done it a long time ago. The real problem is not getting tokens,
but using them. Without those profiles, it doesn't matter.

No, I wasn't talking explicitly about WS-Addressing, but there's probably
some basic use of it in there. Liberty defines a couple of headers for
housekeeping, and then there's WS-Security, but even that's basically just
used for timestamping if you wanted to use, say, basic-auth for

Since all I'm talking about is SOAP between the client and the IdP, I don't
see why a conflict with WSRF would matter.
