Subject: Re: [ubl-security] Draft 10 of the UBL Digital Signature Profile for review

I found something I didn't see before:  Both the Terms and 
Definitions (1.1.1) and section 2.2 make reference to an enveloping 
signature, yet we don't provide a profile for such.  Should we 
explicitly acknowledge (perhaps in section 2.4) that we are not 
providing a profile for such (so the reader realizes nothing is 
inadvertently missing), or change the existing text to say something 
along the lines of "Two of the ways an XML Signature may be described 
are as detached and enveloped."?  It might be enough that in 2.4 we 
alread say "specifies two profiles..." so the reader knows nothing is missing.

Please forgive me that my leave of absence prevented me from 
submitting my comments in a timely fashion.

The document looks good to me, Jon ... thank you for your efforts.

I hope this helps.
