           Summary: Note on using xml:id should reference Canonical XML 1.1
                    and XML Signature, Second Edition
           Product: WS-Policy
           Version: PR
          Platform: Macintosh
               URL: http://www.w3.org/TR/2007/NOTE-ws-policy-primer-

        OS/Version: MacOS X
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Primer

Section 2.10 Referencing Policy Expressions after example 2.16 has same issue
as framework, note needs to be replaced.

Description/Justification

Currently Section 2.10 Referencing Policy Expressions after example 2.16
contains a note that use of
Canonical XML 1.0 with xml:id is not appropriate. This is correct.

It has an additional Note that Canonical XML 1.1 is intended to address this
and that the XML Security Specifications Maintenance WG has been chartered to
investigate. This is no longer accurate since Canonical XML 11 has been
released as a Recommendation as has XML Signature (Second Edition).

Target - primer

Proposal

Create Proposed Errata against Primer document.

(Part 1) Replace the following text in Section 2.10 Referencing Policy
Expressions after example 2.16:
---
Note:
Canonical XML 1.1 [C14N11] is intended to address the issues that occur with
Canonical XML 1.0 with regards to xml:id. The W3C XML Security Specifications
Maintenance WG has been chartered to address how to integrate Canonical XML 1.1
with XML Security, including XML Signature [SecSpecMaintWG] (See
http://www.w3.org/2007/xmlsec/.)
---
With the following text:
---
Note that is is acceptable to sign a policy expression identified using xml:id
with XML SIgnature (Second Edition) [XML-Signature-2ndEdition] and Canonical
XML 1.1 [C14N11], as these recommendations  address issues related to the use
of xml:id and xml:base.
---
(Part 2)
Update the reference to C14N11 in Appendix C.

Replace the following:
---
 Canonical XML 1.1, J. Boyer and G. Marcy Authors. W3C Candidate

available at http://www.w3.org/TR/2007/CR-xml-c14n11-20070621. The latest
version of Canonical XML 1.1 is available at http://www.w3.org/TR//xml-c14n11/.
