Dear Art,

Regarding "P&C spec - Mandatory config file", I would like to give more information about my concerns.

According to the current "W3C Working Draft 9 March 2009", the config.xml file has a single mandatory element. This is the <widget> element. All its expected children elements and attributes are optional. Therefore I have got the impression that the config.xml file does not add any security. However, it will help to identify a zip archive as a widget if the media type and/or file extension are missing.

To be clear, I do not have any objections against the config.xml file in general. I only have concerns regarding its potential to improve security.

Best Regards,

Rainer
