Attached is WS-RA response to our request regarding the creation of a  
common XPath profiling document


We should discuss how to  respond to WS-RA, and also whether we still  
need to separate our XPath profile from Signature 2.0 draft [1].

regards, Frederick

> Subject: Combined specification for xpath dialects
> Dear Frederick,
> Your proposal and comment, which was recorded as Bugzilla Issue Nr.  
> 9588, was discussed and resolved at the WS-RA Working group meeting  
> of 2010-05-11.
> After consideration of your proposal as well as the proposal of an  
> additional xpath dialect from another group, the WG decided that it  
> wasn't in the business of defining xpath dialects at all.
> Consequently it has removed the definition of its "Xpath Level 1"  
> dialect from the ws-fragmant specification and is closing both this  
> issue and the other received requesting an additional xpath dialect  
> with no action.  These individual dialects seem to have specific  
> domain based requirements and as such did not seem appropriate for  
> insertion in these specifications.
> Please respond to the list copied in this email indicating your  
> agreement or disagreement with this approach.
> thanks
