Dear XML Security WG,

> Dear Advisory Committee Representative,
> 
> The XML Security Patent Advisory Group (PAG) [1] has published a report 
> recommending that W3C continue work on XML Security Specifications:
>  http://www.w3.org/2011/xmlsec-pag/pagreport
> 
> The PAG's primary conclusions are:
> 
> 1) Work on XML Encryption Syntax and Processing Version 1.1 should continue 
>     without changes.
> 2) For the avoidance of doubt and in order to be helpful to implementers, the PAG 
>    recommends the inclusion of wording in XML Signature Syntax and Processing Version 1.1, 
>    and in XML Signature 2.0 allowing the use of alternative algorithms that are still interoperable.
> 
> Assuming adoption of these recommendations, the PAG concludes that the 
> initial concern has been resolved, enabling the Working Group to continue. There is 
> more detail and background in the PAG report [.]
