Updated Widget Signature Editors draft

I have  updated the Widgets Signature editors draft [1] as follows:

1. Restructured to move definitions section before compliance, merge  
user agent section into compliance, and provide syntax, processing  
rules and algorithms sections to mirror XML Signature document  
structure and separate concerns.

2. Cleaned up definitions, removing unused definitions, rewording and  
adding needed definitions. Fixed all definition links in document.

3. Added Signature Properties text (as proposed earlier [2]) in  
section 6.1, with some draft URIs for place holders.

4. Added text for Widget Signature Validation (proposed in [2]) with  
some modifications

5. Attempted to clean up the RFC 2119 language in section 3 and rest,  
to use upper case and removed non 2119 language highlighting - to  
resolve Jere's concern [3] and follow common practice here.

6. Revised generation processing rules to rely on XML Signature, not  
be algorithmic, and to include properties

7. Added RFC 5280 and Signature Properties references

8. Revised introduction (remove duplicate file name definition),  
General wording cleanup throughout.

Work remains on Certificate, CRL and OCSP profiling, and decisions  
related to algorithms.

regards, Frederick
