I've been lurking in here for a while now.  So purely for the purposes 
of getting a discussion going....

I must admit to being a little unclear as to what is going to be the 
process for interop here.  We (Apache) are starting a process of 
creating an implementation.  But it's not quite like XML Encryption or 
Signature, where I can test my interoperability by simply posting a 
message/set of messages to the list.  With XKMS the client/server 
ineractions are very immediate, and you want to show SOAP/TLS etc. as 
well as XML processing.

http://www.w3.org/2001/XKMS/xkms-implementations/ mentions a test 
matrix.  Is there a first cut of this?  Maybe we need to define a set of 
  required interactions mapping them to the XKMS features that need to 
be shown as working to be interoperable?

E.g. an XKMS client used to encrypt an XML message to 
blautenb@apache.org using a key requested from the XKMS server at the 
ASF (which doesn't exist yet :>).  Being able to use the key to encrypt 
shows I have successfully retrieved and interpreted it.

Cheers,
