There's a long standing demand for SOAP headers that can be used with 
xlmdsig and xenc. The work shouldn't be hard. We already have proposals: on 
the xmldsig side we have [1], on xenc we have [2]. What we don't have yet 
is a quorum, a namespace, nor a formal chartered process. However, *if* 
someone was willing to volunteer to author such a document:

1. We have the following list with some of the interested folks on it. It 
should be used for discussion and convergence on a document.
2. I'm confident I could get the proposal a stable namespace.
3. Process wise, such an activity might get picked up somewhere, sometime, 
(I favor as part of the Web Services Activity...) but there's no reason to 
wait for that. If there's a document in hand, then when some (re)chartering 
is at hand, it makes it all that much easier to add it as a deliverable.

If you're interested, let me know. I won't continue this discussion on xenc 
or dist-app, if you are interested, join www-xenc-xmlp-tf [3].
