Thanks Frederick,

May I suggest to slightly modify the end of (2) to read:

"For XML formats for advanced electronic signatures that incorporate 
relevant signed properties in business domains and remain valid over 
long periods, please refer to the [XADES] specification."

As actually XAdES deals with both issues: the long term validity and the 
definition of a soundful set of signed properties not necessarily 
related to the long term validity ....


Juan Carlos.
