The CG had a presentation of WS-Security by the co-chairs of the OASIS
TC. I don't know if they address this question or not. imho, it seems
appropriate for the TC to tackle this issue as well. After all, they are
the ones defining WS-Security as well and we won't be able to address
all kind of extensions as Sanjiva pointed out. How about raising this
issue to the CG to make sure that at least someone is going to address?
