Subject: RE: [wss] SAML profile and interop scenario documents notes


Thanks for the comments. The correct URN for sender-vouches will be 
included in the next update.

Regarding processing of the Conditions element: the only scenario
that does not include the Conditions element is the minimal scenario 1, 
line 204. The other 3 scenarios (see lines 385, 578, and 822) do include
the Conditions element, and in each case where it is included, the 
section *. contains a statement indicating that the Conditions
must contain valid NotBefore and NotAfter attributes. (Note: there
is a section discrepancy: section should be and the
subsections should be broken out. I will fix that.)

For now I will leave the Conditions as Mandatory for all 3 scenarios
because my sense is that the questions have been about consistency
of the scenarios rather than whether the Conditions should be optional. 

It would seem to me that scenario 1 demonstrates the optional nature
of the Conditions element in the minimal scenario, but the other 3
scenarios are intended to represent potentially secure use cases,
in which it seems likely to me that assertion issuers will place
validity intervals on the assertions. 

However, I do sense that there is sentiment to make the inclusion
of Conditions optional for all scenarios. If this is the case,
please give me additional feedback that directly requests this
change as distinct from the "consistency" issue. However, as I indicated
above, it "seems" to me to be reasonable to make it mandatory for
the scenarios, but if not then it can be changed.
