Subject: proposed errata: invalid nameid-format identifier

Section 8.3 identifies the complete list of SSTC-defined name identifier
formats.  The URN for the "unspecified" NameID format in SAML 2.0 is the
same identifier that we used in SAML 1.1.  Specifically, line 3551 of
sstc-saml-core-errata-2.0-wd-05-diff.pdf (section 8.3.1) defines the
identifier as "URI:

Unfortunately, we have 2 references in section to the identifier
"urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:nameid-format:unspecified".  Specifically,
lines 2223 and 2233 of the wd5-diff spec are incorrect.  The former
reference is from the original 2.0 spec.  The latter was text added as
part of errata E15.

IMO, these 2 references should be changed from "2.0" to "1.1".
