"... The XML protocol SHOULD provide facilities (possibly optional 
standardised header and/or trailer elements) to encourage a common 
approach for providing facilities such as: authentication, 
encryption, reliable delivery, sessions and transactions."

It seems like some of these requirements may actually be higher
level (application) issues. I would like to hear more arguments that
they should be in the scope of the XP spec.
