Subject: Formal submission from WSS TC for OASIS final standardization process

Dear Karl,  here is the final version of the formal submission paperwork for the SAML and REL Token Profiles from the WSS TC. We hope  everything below meets with your approval. Please let us know if there is anything else that we need to provide. Please let us know what numbers you assign to the documents so that we may rename the files in accordance with OASIS naming guidelines. Thanks.
