>From what I can tell, we didn't really get any input on any
of the questions above.  Specifically, folks argued about a
1.0 erratum versus 1.1, but no one addressed "if we create a 
new namespace for C14N 1.1, what do we say the old namespace 
means?"  And no one had any other suggestions on how to go
about making a C14N 1.1 that minimized problems.

Glenn, is that correct, or did we miss something?

Glenn,

We are assuming you still agree with a 1.1 instead of an erratum
to 1.0, correct?  Assuming so...

... do you accept this action item?
