For minor additions like that, I think something like XProc 1.1 may be
created in the near future, when this method becomes official, no?

Though to be honest, if all enumerated option values were QNames, it would
be nice indeed. The more extensibility hooks, the better ^_^ .

  Not sure my comment was clear.  I do not suggest to do anything
explicit regarding this draft.  But add something like "the auth
method 'token' is reserved for potential future usage by this
REC".  If not, I bet some implementations will use it as an
implementation-defined method (while other implementations will
use the other consistent words for the same spec).

  Another solution would be to define the value of the auth-method
to be a QName, and forbidding implementation-defined methods to
be in no namespace. (for now, this attribute is defined to be a
string, so the auth-method "ff .__+=1 1.%" is legal)

  Regards,
