Warwick,

I agree with the timing you suggest for xkms and xbulk, but I think 
the requirements document is getting weird - hard to see how it can 
really be requirements for xkms when that document's already done 
before draft one of the requirements document issues.

Maybe it'd be ok to change the timing as you suggest if we also change 
the deliverable to "A W3C Note documenting the criteria and requirements 
used in the design of XKMS" or somesuch so that its clear that its just 
a historical note and isn't intended to open up chances to add new 
functionality?

Stephen.
