This is great news, and the XML Security WG welcomes this review and  
all the help we can get to make the RNG Schemas as good and complete  
as possible.

We plan to publish a First Public Working Draft of the XML RNG Schemas  
document next week, 4 February, you can see the current draft at


You will note that the draft currently only references the xmldsig- 
core-schema.rnc, xmldsig11-schema.rnc and any-containing-xmldsig11.rnc
for XML Signature 1.1. It also only references xmldsig-properties- 
schema.rnc and any-containing-xmldsig11-properties.rnc for XML  
Signature Properties.

It does not directly reference allowAny.rnc, allowAny11.rnc,  
allowAnyForeign.rnc allowAnyForeign11.rnc, any-containing-xmldsign.rnc  
or exclusiveC14N.rnc. I'm not sure if or how these should be mentioned  
in the document, so that is something to consider adding for a  
revision before WG1 review. For example, we might want a new section  
for Exclusive Canonicalization.

I also think it would be helpful if you could please provide schemas  
for XML Encryption 1.1 and Generic Hybrid Cipher before WG1 review as  
well. Then we may have a complete document.

We might also wish to discuss later what we might need to do with  
regards to XML Signature 2.0.

Thank you very much, this is a great help.

regards, Frederick
