Dear all,


First:

taking a quick look at deployed eGovernment Applications in Austria, I came a across the following XPointer examples: 

"#xmlns(etsi=http://uri.etsi.org/01903/v1.1.1%23)%20xpointer(id('etsi-data-object-0-1170250194-615474328-3174')/child::etsi:QualifyingProperties/child::etsi:SignedProperties)"

In the EBICS Standard the following is used:

<Reference URI="#xpointer(//*[@authenticate='true'])">

<Reference URI="#xpointer(%2F%2F*%5B%40authenticate%3D%27true%27%5D)">


Second:

There is also a need for clarification in section 4.3.3.1 
(http://www.w3.org/TR/xmldsig-core/#sec-URI)

It is currently unclear whether square Brackets '[' ']' are to be 
escaped in the fragment part for non IPv6 URIs ...

The treatment of the number sign (#) and percent sign (%) is also not 
entirely clear.

e.g.:
"http://www.No%231.example.org/path/?query#xpointer(//*[@someattr='%2525]%23['])"
vs
"http://www.No#1.example.org/path/?query#xpointer(//*[@someattr='%25]#['])"

Konrad
