Seems like UI issues and mixing of trusted/untrusted information should
go under this heading
 
2.5 Reliable presentation of security information

discussing the mixing of trusted/untrusted information in the UI
	
	
	If I have this action right I am not sure if this belongs in
section 7 - The section is titled Security Information Available to the
User Agent
	 
	Furthermore, section 7 has a heading titled "defined by user
agent" and UI is defined by user agent.  Is the WG making a statement
that this particular UI decision should not be left up to browser
developer community?
	 
	I am thinking that section 7 is the inputs and UI is an output,
UI is the application or use of security information. Do we need a new
section?
	 
	Cheers
	Bill D.
