Perhaps.  If you see my longer note about "trust model," you'll see that 
we need a way to aggregate a bunch of security information, and make 
sure it ends up in a WS-Security element.  This may be different from 
other security information that just needs to be used between the client 
and the epr minter (which,  I know, if out of scope; out security model 
should support some kind of interaction there, however).

Yes, a wsa:Security can go into the metadata bucket.  But saying that 
all or any ds:Signature, wsse:SecurityTokenReference, etc., elements get 
the kind of binding I propsed for wsa:Security, is a mistake.
