You raised a Last Call issue on XML Signature 1.1 related to the ECPointType schema definition.

This issue was recorded as LC-2390, <http://www.w3.org/2006/02/lc-comments-tracker/42458/WD-xmldsig-core1-20100204/2390>

The WG discussed this on 15 June, <http://www.w3.org/2010/06/15-xmlsec-minutes.html#item04>

WG members noted that the reason for the different type is to highlight different semantics and processing rules. In particular CryptoBinary retains leading 0's (unlike Base64) and ECPointType is two points in one binary representation, and could possibly have compression. This is the rationale for a new type and this approach is already in use.

Thus the WG believes this issue is closed and resolved with no action.

Please confirm that you agree (this is for the disposition of Last  Call comments record).

Thanks

regards, Frederick
