Yes, I've seen a few iterations of it, and have discussed some of the
alternative schema formulations with Don. There are always multiple ways of
doing things, and I think the principal need from the SSTC (apart from vocal
support) is feedback as to how best to achieve WS-Federation goals while
also making life easy for existing implementations.

My feedback to Don has been that there are some relatively minor errata to
SAML2Meta that would be useful to clarify the intent for reuse of some
existing constructs, some of which have already been reused by both official
and unofficial profiles, one of which is an OASIS standard [1].

Any objections that I could imagine, which are non-technical, have already
been trumped by our own past extension work.
