Thanks Bernard, I think that OASIS gives me some time before they cut this 
off, don't know by how much though. Better get it in soon, I guess  :)

OK Bernard, as long as you agree with this.
I have been affected too much by how we do these kinds of things here in Japan.

Bernard,  the list of contributors should be placed at the beginning of the 
document after editor. We can place acknowledgements for those who are not 
members of the committee but who contributed some ideas, such as Kal Ahmed 
and Eric Miller, for example. The committee members who contributed to the 
specification are listed at the beginning. See the SAML specification.

You are quite welcome.
