Hi folks,

Today I met with the XML Security WG to discuss XProc.

Based on that discussion, I think it's clear that the requirements of
XML security processing wouldn't be adequately met by a couple of
simple, atomic steps. Security processing already includes the notion
of substeps to perform various sorts of transformations and other
processing. It would be more natural to define compound steps,
possibly with new, and limited, substeps to define security
processing.

On that basis, I believe we can close the issues related to XML
encryption and XML decryption steps without any further action.

The security WG is going to consider how or whether it wants to persue
the declaration of some XProc steps. We'll have an opportunity to meet
with them at TPAC.

                                        Be seeing you,
                                          norm
