The following comments are in response to the XKMS WG Last Call request to
the XML Protocol WG.

1. Section 3 SOAP Binding
para [41] The paragraph includes the sentences:

"Use of SOAP 1.1 is REQUIRED by implementers in the near term for
compatibility with existing tools
and infrastructures. Use of SOAP 1.2 is Recommended."

The XKMS requirements document includes the requirement that :

   XKMS services MUST implement SOAP 1.2 once that specification has
   achieved Candidate Recommendation status.

SOAP 1.2 has now reached Proposed Recommendation status so we ask the XKMS
WG to state that the use of SOAP 1.2 is REQUIRED by implementers. In
addition, SOAP 1.1 is W3C Note which has an informal status. The XKMS
specification should reflect this. We suggest the sentences above be
changed to:

"Use of SOAP 1.2 is REQUIRED by implementers of this specification. For
near term compatibility with existing tools and infrastructure, SOAP 1.1
MAY be used"

2. Section 3.1.1 SOAP 1.2 Binding
The example XKMS Request and Response messages in paras [45] and [46] are
syntactically incorrect - there is no termination for the env:Header
element. Similar errors exist in the examples in paras [54] and [55].

Apart from this, we have no further comments.
