Does the WG feel that it's worthwhile to adopt the terminology of SOAP 
1.2 yet not adopt its entire Infoset approach?  If so, I strongly 
suggest that you add something to that effect here.  It's good that this 
mentions the work that WS-Security would have to do.  I am fairly 
confident that they will reject this item, so you might want to consider 
ways of not forcing them to ignore all the 1.2-related items you raise.

Suggest you define EII, if only to remind WS-Security folks who have 
ignored the Infoset. ;)
