I believe the referernce is to wsc-xit, not wsc-usecases.

And I agree; section 7 doesn't look like the right place to me. If it's 
about mixing trusted and untrusted info in certs; maybe sections 4 or 8? 
Johnathan, Thomas, Tyler - you were all on the discussion; any better 
recall?

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

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.
