I agree with your changes.  I noticed that some documents reference one way and other documents reference the other way.  Consistency is preferred.

Regards, Cynthia

Subject: ACTION-336: Reference update for XML Signature

I've spent some time updating the XML Signature references, based on  
Cynthia's work. (Thanks a lot for that!)

References that I think are informational (which Cynthia had as  

- RFC 4086 (randomness requirements)
- RFC 4949 (Internet Security Glossary)
- SOAP (therefore, no need to update that one beyond SOAP 1.1, which  
an example refers to)
- XML Signature 2002 (this reference is specific to the previous  
Recommendation, hence no update needed)

References that I think are normative (which Cynthia had as  

- X509v3
- XML Media Types
- XPointer element() scheme
- XPointer Framework
- XSLT 1.0

References that should not be updated:

- XML Signature 2002
- RFC 4055 seems to augment, but not supersede RFC 3279
- XPath 1.0
- XSL 1.0
- XSLT 1.0

References that can be dropped:

- XHTML 1.0
- XLink
