Hi Blair,

I have several minor comments on the schema.

1. The prolog would be:

<!DOCTYPE schema
   PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XMLSCHEMA 200010//EN" "http://www.w3.org/2000/10/XMLSchema.dtd"
  [
   <!ATTLIST schema xmlns:xenc CDATA #FIXED "http://www.w3.org/2000/11/temp-xmlenc">
                    xmlns:ds CDATA #FIXED "http://www.w3.org/2000/09/xmldsig#">
   <!ENTITY enc "http://www.w3.org/2000/11/temp-xmlenc">
   <!ENTITY dsig "http://www.w3.org/2000/09/xmldsig#">
  ]>

2. '=0' should be replaced with '="0"'.

3. '/' after 'minOccurs=0' in the definition of EncryptedData is
unnecessary.

4. The declaration of URI attribute in the definition of CipherText2 has to
be placed under the complexType element.

5. The ds:transforms in the definition of CipherText2 would be
ds:Transforms.

6. This schema has no definition of EncryptedReference.

7. Isn't '##other' more appropriate than '#any'?

8. It might be an idea to specify 'processContents' (lax or strict)
explicitly.

Hope this helps.

We respectfully submit the attached specification
as a suggested starting point for the XML Encryption Working
Group effort.  This work builds on earlier papers and
on-going discussions.

We look forward to comments and continuing discussions
to resolve the open issues identified in this document.
