> This agreement includes the following:
> 
> 1. No new normative features will be added to XML Encryption 1.1,
> including the definition of additional key derivation functions or
> usage. If the working group is interested such features could be
> defined in a separate specification or a subsequent 1.2 update.

> 2. The newly added security considerations section is acceptable to the
> WG as written, see section 6.1.3 Backwards Compatibility Attacks in the
> editors draft
> 
> 3. The document is stable, all comments have been addressed and interop
> has been completed [1].
> 
> Given agreement on these points I believe we are ready to progress to
> Proposed Recommendation.

> Agreeing to this decision means I will request a transition to PR after
> 17 December with a planned PR publication on 10 January 2013, assuming
> that date works for the W3C Team. As part of publication process I will
> update the references (including cross-references to other documents

> In addition we agree that I will request publication of an update of

> Encryption 1.1" to add information about the added 6.1.3 security
> considerations section.
