I am not sure if I can post to this list, but if not, I will ask Mike to
post for me.

The summary is good. In addition there will be an effort in parallel to
document some usecases. However, I don't think that will lead to a expanded
scope. Mostly likely it will result in defining what's in and what's out.

For those who don't know, a couple of months ago I was designated the
liaison person from OASIS to WC3 on Web Services Security generally. (There
is supposed to be a second person but they have not been named yet.) For
that reason, I asked to be the liaison from this specific TC to W3C WSA WG.
(See, I learned the acryonyms ;-)

Scope was a major topic of discussion, with the orginal proposers wanting to
keep it narrow and others wanting to work additional topics in parallel. The
one specific topic proposed was Quality of Service which is being addressed
by forming a discussion group, which may or may not lead to a TC.
