Comments on latest Generic Hybrid Ciphers editors draft

Substantive:

(1) The document shortname is "xmlsec-generic-hybrid" and the  
namespace is "http://www.w3.org/2009/xmlsec-gh#"

Should the shortname match the namespace  (e.g. "xmlsec-generic- 
hybrid" vs "xmlsec-gh") ?

(2) Should the namespace include 2009 or 2010 as the year

(3) Do we need a note regarding the status of ECIES-KEM, currently  
mandatory, given the unclear ECC IPR status?

Editorial

(1) Introduction

Change " usage of these algorithms in XML-based security applications"  
to " usage of these algorithms in conjunction with XML Security"

(2) Section 2, Versions ...

Replace "This namespace is also used as the prefix for identifiers  
defined by this specification."

with

"The use of the gh prefix in this document is an editorial convention  
- other prefix values could be associated with the namespace."

(3) Section 4.2

s/combines/combine/

(4) Section 4.3

s/in, e.g., /in/

(5) Section 6, Examples

Mark this section as informative.

(6) Section 10 Schema

Mark example as informative.


regards, Frederick
