Makoto has provided a comprehensive update of the RELAX NG Schemas for XML Security (thank you very much).  I believe it is much more comprehensive now.

As he noted in the update to the status of the document the changes include:

[[
This version of this specification is significantly different from the previous version.

	 The prose has been completely rewritten. In particular, Taxonomy of schemas, Schema authoring techniques, and Schema indexes have been introduced.
	 xmldsig-filter2.rnc for XML-Signature XPath Filter 2.0 has been added.
	 xmldsig11-schema.rnc has been modified by adding X509Digest and invoking xmldsig-filter2.rnc.
	 Small bugs in xenc-schema-11.rnc and xmlsec-ghc-schema.rnc have been fixed.
	 any.rnc has been renamed as security_any.rnc
	 exclusiveC14N.rnc has been renamed as exc-c14n.rnc
	 Driver schemas have been thoroughly renamed.
]]

Given the degree of changes and the fact that this work is being used for epub3, it is important to publish an updated (non-final) working draft this month if we can.

I believe Makoto has validated the RNG schemas and verified them against the current XML Security 1.1 XML Schemas, but Makoto may wish to confirm that on the list.

I have prepared the document for publication, fixing some validation errors, spelling and completing a validation, link and pubrules check.  I did not include a diff in the status section as it would not be useful - too much has changed.

 I propose we publish an updated working draft on 30 August, a week from this coming Tuesday XML Security WG call - assuming it works for the W3C team.  It would be useful to have consensus to publish by our call this coming Tuesday, 23 August. Given that it is a Note track working draft update I think this is possible.

All, please review the updated draft and schemas and note any concerns or issues to the public xml security mailing list, and if you support publication please indicate on the list.
