We have an opportunity to learn about XPath 2.0 from the XSL working  
group. As Sharon points out below, it would help if we can be clear  
on what we are looking for.

Can someone in the XMLSec WG please start a thread on our public list  
outlining what we would like to learn regarding XPath 2.0?

Thanks

regards, Frederick
