> 
> (6) Evidence that the document satisfies group's requirements. Include a link to requirements
> 
> The XML Security Working Group believe this document satisfies the XML Encryption and XML Signature requirements as outlined in the  XML Security 1.1 Requirements and Design Considerations  document, see http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/WD-xmlsec-reqs-20100204/

> 
> The Web Applications Working Group " Digital Signatures for Widgets" specification has a dependency on XML Signature 1.1, however the  
> substantive changes in XML Signature 1.1 are for features not used by  that specification ( http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/WD-widgets-digsig-20100511/ 
> ). The XML Security Working Group requests review from the Web Applications WG of the XML Signature 1.1 Last Call specification,
> 
> 7b) Efficient XML Interchange Working Group (EXI), http://www.w3.org/XML/EXI/
> 
> The XML Security WG has made changes to the XML Encryption 1.1 specification to clarify use with EXI formats. The XML Security Working Group requests EXI WG review of XML Encryption 1.1 Last Call specification.
> 
> (8) Report of any Formal Objections
> 
> The Working Group has received no formal objections.
> 
> The Working Group has noted the following in the Status of the Document in XML Signature 1.1 and XML Encryption 1.1:
> 
> "This Last Call Working Draft includes the ECDSAwithSHA256 signature  algorithm, which is ECDSA over the P-256 prime curve specified in  Section D.2.3 of FIPS 186-3 [FIPS-186-3] (and using the SHA-256 hash algorithm), as a mandatory to implement algorithm. The Working Group  may request transition to Candidate Recommendation with this feature  marked as "at risk". If issues about deployment of this feature are raised during Candidate Recommendation, the group may elect to make this feature optional."
