I agree with adding the examples.  We might also want to consider adding a
few words to avoid confusion with authentication/authorization.  The word
'security' means more than just encryption.  For example, the S2ML (Security
Services Markup Language) defines authentication and authorization
mechanisms and is considered a security mechanism, but would be layered on
top of XP, not underneath.

I propose that, as suggested by by Henryk in [1], we list the
following protocols: SSL and S/MIME.

              The XP specification should not preclude the use of XP
              messaging over popular security mechanisms
              (SSL and S/MIME).
