Where is that specified? This is an excerpt from the actual schema
(http://www.wapforum.org/profiles/UAPROF/ccppschema-20010330):

<rdf:Description ID="SecuritySupport">
<rdf:type rdf:resource="http://www.w3.org/TR/PR-rdf-schema#Property" /> 
<rdfs:domain rdf:resource="#NetworkCharacteristics" /> 
<rdfs:comment>Description: Type of security or encryption mechanism
supported. Type: Literal Resolution: Locked Example:
"PPTP"</rdfs:comment> 
</rdf:Description>

This is a good point - I was just pointing out what current UA Profiles
use.

Yes, but this means you are forced to say "WTAPublic" when you may only
support "makeCall", for example.

This is also just what Ericsson has decided to use in their T68 profile:

<prf:WtaiLibraries>
<rdf:Bag>
  <rdf:li>WTA.Public.makeCall</rdf:li> 
  <rdf:li>WTA.Public.sendDTMF</rdf:li> 
  <rdf:li>WTA.Public.addPBEntry</rdf:li> 
</rdf:Bag>
</prf:WtaiLibraries>

Yes - that's the only mention of a WMLScript version I could find in the
Spec.
