File extension (was Re: application/wspolicy+xml)

The LCWD [1], Appendix A, specifies "wspolicy" for the file 
extension.  (That is a slight change from that proposed in this email 
from November.)

Is anyone using the extension ".wspolicy" as specified in [1], or is 
something else being used (e.g., .wsp, .xml)?

I am wondering because I was going to download some WS-Policy files 
from a Systinet 2 repository and store them on another machine 
(temporarily), then upload them to an eXist XML database where I can 
run XQuery on them.  I want to use a file extension (suffix) when I 
store them, and I was just looking through [1] to see what I should use.
