Subject: RE: [ws-rx] Amendment to Microsoft/IBM proposal for i122-i124

Attached is a revised version of our amendment that addresses your
concerns about forcing the selection of a security mechanism. Basically
the meaning of the assertion has been changed from "you must bind the RM
Sequence to an SSL/TLS session" to "you must bind the RM Sequence to the
session of the underlying transport-level security protocol" thus
leaving the selection of that protocol up to WS-SP.

The really big change is from this:

"This assertion MUST only occur in conjunction with the
<wsrmp:RMAssertion/> and a <sp:TransportBinding> assertion that
specifies the use of SSL/TLS."

to this:

"This assertion is effectively meaningless unless it occurs in
conjunction with the wsrmp:RMAssertion and a sp:TransportBinding
assertion that requires the use of some transport-level security
mechanism (e.g. sp:HttpsToken)."
