Regarding my Action-711 I had a look at the latest version of the
DSig2.0 draft and noticed that the example documents I created
originally
(http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xmlsec/2010Sep/0024.html)
are not contained. However, I verified both my original versions and the
example fragments I found in the draft regarding the use of either
QNameAware or IDAttributes.

I came to the conclusion that for the given examples both elements are
used properly whenever they occur, but since there is no example that
really makes explicit use of their intended functionality, there is no
real example showing the reader how their use should look like. In other
words, there is either no ID or no QName-in-content in the examples.

I recommend adding another full example document to the spec, maybe as
2.1.1.2 or 2.4 (weird headline numbering here...). However, I feel that
I'm not able to come up with such an example on my own - besides the
ones I already drafted in September, see above.

I think this should close Action-711 for now, but on the next call we
should discuss creating and adding a new, more complete example of 2.0
mode signatures.

cheers

Meiko
