Addison et al.,

On behalf of the XML Core WG, let me apologize for not
replying to your message of January 31 [1] sooner.

We are about to take C14N 1.1 to Rec, and we appreciate
the fact that your email indicated that you do not object
to the document's advancement, but I would like to provide
you with a reply explaining our position.

One of the meta-issues with XML Core's publication of C14N 1.1 
is that the WG was just chartered to make supposedly minor 
changes to C14N 1.0 to fix the fact that it was inheriting 
xml:id and xml:base attributes when it shouldn't.

Both our charter and the C14N 1.1 requirements minimized our
ability to touch other areas of the spec which explains why
we haven't directly addressed either of the two points you 
raise in your message.

Further maintenance of C14N will be undertaken by the
XML Security Working Group, and we would join you in urging 
them to update the spec to refer to LEIRIs as soon as 3987bis 
is referenceable.
