The TC members discussed whether the Security Control module should be included in the first
UOML Specification draft. Some of the comments on this issue that are given are:
If the Security Control module is included in the first work draft, the deadline of the
draft submission will be postponed;
Security Control module take an important role for UOML, it should be integrated into
the first specification.

in the first specification, although it will take a longer time to be submitted, as Security
Control part is the necessary function of UOML.

understand the future cooperation for ODF and UOML.
