ACTION-65: test cases for C14N with comments, scheme-based xpointers

Dear all,

The XMLSig WG produced test cases for checking how tools dealt with C14N 
with comments as a result of using scheme-based xpointers in the URI 
attribute of the ds:Reference.

More specifically, Merlin Hughes produced a complicated ds:Signature 
that collectively signed a great bunch of objects. This signature signed 
xml objects with and without comments, referenced through scheme-based 
xpointers and also barename pointers, etc, etc.

You may find this signature in the gzip file that will find in the URL 
below:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-ietf-xmldsig/2002AprJun/att-0016/01-merlin-xmldsig-twenty-three.tar.gz

When you decompress this file, you will find lots of files. The 
signature itself is in the signature.xml file.

My initial feeling is that this is a complex example that tests quite a 
lot of things at the same time.... I would propose to keep it as an 
example of advanced test case, but also define new test cases for the 
specific issues of C14N with comments and scheme-based xpointers.

As a conclusion, I suggest to keep this action open until I define these 
new test cases.

Regards

Juan Carlos.
