I think this working group does not need to define the
requirements, mechanics, and policies of key management,
but as part of the securty assuarance that a security
enabled web services must provide, we need to be able to 
describe the relationship of a secure web service to 
XKMS and other XML based Trust Services, which provide 
key, certificate, and trust management services.

Although, I don't think we should imply that the
use of XKMS or other related standards is required.

Why make WS get involved in key management issues?  This seems beyond the 
scope of what WS Arch needs to specify.
