> Subject: [wss-comment] XML Dsig schema reference
> Within the core schema, the XML DSig schema is imported using a
> reference to the W3C page that will always return the "latest" version
> of the specification (what I would call an "undated" reference):
> http://www.w3.org/TR/xmldsig-core/xmldsig-core-schema.xsd
> I recommend that this be changed to a dated reference to a specific
> version of the XMLDsig specification for several reasons including a)
> the current setting causes problems in some validators when other
> specifications include the date specific version and b) the TC
> tested/approved a specific version of the standard and would need to
> review any updated standard before adopting it.  The dated version of
> the reference would be:
> http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/REC-xmldsig-core-20020212/xmldsig-core- 
> schema.xsd
> The resulting change is zero with respect to functionality/schema
> details as they both refer to the same file contents, so I would think
> this simply an editorial change that protects against potential  
> problems
> should the dsig spec evolve.
