> 7a) Web Applications Working Group (WebApps), http://www.w3.org/ 
> 2008/webapps/
>
> The Web Applications Working Group " Digital Signatures for  
> Widgets" specification has a dependency on XML Signature 1.1,  
> however the
> substantive changes in XML Signature 1.1 are for features not used  
> by  that specification ( http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/WD-widgets- 
> digsig-20100511/
>  ). The XML Security Working Group requests review from the Web  
> Applications WG of the XML Signature 1.1 Last Call specification,
>
> 7b) Efficient XML Interchange Working Group (EXI), http:// 
> www.w3.org/XML/EXI/
>
> The XML Security WG has made changes to the XML Encryption 1.1  
> specification to clarify use with EXI formats. The XML Security  
> Working Group requests EXI WG review of XML Encryption 1.1 Last  
> Call specification.
>
> (8) Report of any Formal Objections
>
> The Working Group has received no formal objections.
>
> The Working Group has noted the following in the Status of the  
> Document in XML Signature 1.1 and XML Encryption 1.1:
>
> "This Last Call Working Draft includes the ECDSAwithSHA256  
> signature  algorithm, which is ECDSA over the P-256 prime curve  
> specified in  Section D.2.3 of FIPS 186-3 [FIPS-186-3] (and using  
> the SHA-256 hash algorithm), as a mandatory to implement algorithm.  
> The Working Group  may request transition to Candidate  
> Recommendation with this feature  marked as "at risk". If issues  
> about deployment of this feature are raised during Candidate  
> Recommendation, the group may elect to make this feature optional."
