Thanks Frederick and Group.

A question: Since the newest update to the W3C Process[1] will add an
"Obsolete" status, should we now Obsolete XML Encryption 1.0 in favor of
XML Encryption 1.1 ?

Obsoleting[2] does not do anything to patent commitments; it merely
indicates that the spec is no longer recommended for implementation, in
this case because we have a new Recommendation.

Thanks, and Happy New Year,
