Re: Call for Review: Last Call WD of Widgets 1.0 Requirements

Hi Sean,
I've fixed the typos, I have one question about X.509v4. Please see below.

As it is never used, I have removed it. However, I'll be sure to
reference it properly in our other specs, particularly in the Widgets:
1.0 Digital Signature spec [1]. I've also removed a few other
references that were no longer used in this version of the document.

I've updated the references to version 3, using the following citation:
ITU-T Recommendation X.509 version 3 (1997). "Information Technology -
Open Systems Interconnection - The Directory Authentication Framework"
ISO/IEC 9594-8:1997.

However, do you think we should be referencing version 4? has there
been much uptake of v4?

Kind regards,

Marcos Caceres
