 Dear <Frederick.Hirsch@nokia.com>,

The XML Security Working Group has reviewed the comments you sent [1] on
the Last Call Working Draft [2] of the XML Signature Syntax and Processing
Version 2.0 published on 21 Apr 2011. Thank you for having taken the time
to review the document and to send us comments!

The Working Group's response to your comment is included below.

Please review it carefully and let us know by email at
public-xmlsec@w3.org if you agree with it or not before 13 September 2011.
In case of disagreement, you are requested to provide a specific solution
for or a path to a consensus with the Working Group. If such a consensus
cannot be achieved, you will be given the opportunity to raise a formal
objection which will then be reviewed by the Director during the transition
of this document to the next stage in the W3C Recommendation Track.

Thanks,

For the XML Security Working Group,
Thomas Roessler
