Dear all,

I have been looking at the canonical 1.1 version in
http://www.w3.org/XML/2007/05/CR-xml-c14n11-20070509-diff.htm

I understood that action 36 was to take a look to the examples in 3.7 
and 3.8.


I only have one point: the current text does not say in fact what 
processing is expected to be done with the expressions in the "Document 
Subset Expression": I assume that it is a xpath filtering as defined in 
XMLSig and then it seems to work...but I haven't seen anything.

As I see we should be a bit more precise saying that what is 
canonicalized is actually the outcome of appliying the XPATH FILTERING 
AS DEFINED IN XMLSIG based on the expresion given in "Document Subset 
Expression" cells of the table, to the input document present in the 
"input Document" cells.

As for the processing of the xml namespace attributes it seem OK to me.
