           Summary: Digital signature and SML-IF
           Product: SML
           Version: FPWD
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Interchange Format
        AssignedTo: cmsmcq@w3.org
        ReportedBy: sandygao@ca.ibm.com

When SML model documents are included in an SML-IF document, they may have
associated digital signatures, and these signatures may become invalid if the
enclosed documents are altered in certain ways.

Should IF impose a requirement that, when documents are included in IF, they
never need to be modified in a way not compatible with XML Canonicalization?

Or should the above be allowed, and indicate that digital signatures are
(should be) generated *after* the modifications are made?

Or should IF not view this as a requirement and be silent about it?
