In reviewing the current draft of XML Signature, I am delighted to see the
text approach what I had suggested back in May [1] ;-)
 
In reviewing my May proposal and the current draft, I will say that the
current draft's use of the word "augmented" is better than the May wording
of "exceptions". However, I would still suggest that we need to have a
sub-heading "Distinguished Name Encoding" (was "DName Encoding in [1]") so
that the sentences in 4.4.4 can be changed from 
>>>
*	The X509IssuerSerial element, which contains an X.509 issuer
distinguished name/serial number pair. The distinguished name SHOULD be
represented as a string that complies with section 3 of  RFC4514 [
<http://www.w3.org/TR/xmldsig-core/#ref-LDAP-DN> LDAP-DN], 
 
*	The X509SubjectName element, which contains an X.509 subject
distinguished name that SHOULD be represented as a string that complies with
section 3 of RFC4514 [ <http://www.w3.org/TR/xmldsig-core/#ref-LDAP-DN>
LDAP-DN], 
<<<
to
>>>
*	The X509IssuerSerial element, which contains an X.509 issuer
distinguished name/serial number pair. The distinguished name SHOULD be
represented as a string that complies with <new>the rules specified in
section "Distinguished Name Encoding"</new>, 
 
*	The X509SubjectName element, which contains an X.509 subject
distinguished name that SHOULD be represented as a string that complies with
<new>the rules specified in section "Distinguished Name Encoding"</new>
<<<
 
Do others agree with the above suggested changes to 4.4.4?
