Good comments on 6.2.

You're talking this line, right?:

Finally, a web browser might have been launched by some local application.

On your 1., I think we don't want SaaS to be hiding critical security 
information the user needs. But I'm also missing how that's linked to 
launching a web browser. 

On your 2., it's certainly true that, for example, in my company, remote 
software can cause things to happen locally on my machine. It's how 
upgrades and patches are managed. So while there is some local application 
(the OS) in the middle, your point is well taken about cause and effect. 
I'm fuzzy on the definition of SaaS. Would it cover all remote programs, 
or is it more restrictive? I would have guessed the latter. So how about 
changing "local" to "local or remote"?

Comments RE: The Working draft






Hello All:
 
Please accept my following comments to the following document:
http://www.w3.org/TR/wsc-usecases/
 
The following are offered as comments, questions and or suggestions.
 
 
 
Section 6 ? Use Cases Comments
 
6.2 ? My suggestion for this section is to either remove ?some local 
application? or replace it with ?a local or SaaS application?. I make this 
distinction because 
1. Software may be provided with increasing frequency as a service, and 
that SaaS could potentially hide some common items we are discussing
2. ?Local? is limiting especially if we are using some sort of software 
distribution service, etc. While in the past comments I have said that we 
need to be unambiguous in the case of defining where an application is 
being launched from I would recommend that we be ambiguous or at least 
more general. 
 

 
Cheers,
