I fear reusing the same name as the open source implementation already available
on Sourceforge (http://sourceforge.net/projects/xkms) is not a good idea.
This confuses people searching for XKMS technology. Please consider a

There is also http://ejbca.sourceforge.net/ , which appears to be
an open source CA with an XKMS frontend.

Is there a description/comparison somewhere in what features your
(planned) implementation differs from the already available ones?
