It was my goal to include existing security context available within WG
scope and charter.

I Felt that it was not the goal to document all security information or
all security capabilities available or in use on a networked enabled
platform.

The new text seems to suggest we're not considering it a goal to
document *existing* practices to protect security context
information against spoofing attacks.

If that's intended, I disagree.

(One could argue, though, that this is covered by the "reliable
presentation" goal, among others.)
