 Dear MURATA Makoto ,

The XML Security Working Group has reviewed the comments you sent [1] on
the Last Call Working Draft [2] of the XML Encryption Syntax and Processing
Version 1.1 published on 13 May 2010. Thank you for having taken the time
to review the document and to send us comments!

The Working Group's response to your comment is included below.

Please review it carefully and let us know by email at
public-xmlsec@w3.org if you agree with it or not before 22 August 2011. In
case of disagreement, you are requested to provide a specific solution for
or a path to a consensus with the Working Group. If such a consensus cannot
be achieved, you will be given the opportunity to raise a formal objection
which will then be reviewed by the Director during the transition of this
document to the next stage in the W3C Recommendation Track.


For the XML Security Working Group,
Thomas Roessler

Your comment on 9.1 XSD Schema XML Encryption Core Schema Instance
> xenc-schema-11.xsd does not import xmldsig11-schema.xsd but
> rather import xmldsigschema.xsd.  However, XML Encryption 1.1
> normatively references to XML Signature 1.1 rather than 1.0.
> Which is correct?

Working Group Resolution (LC-2544):
The working group decided to not make any change here as
xenc-schema-11.xsd does not require any definitions from
xmldsig-11-schema.xsd. All that is required is ds:DigestMethod from
xmldsigschmema.xsd; so the current inclusion is correct and does not
include unnecessary material.

Thus the schema import is correct as is the normative reference to XML
SIgnature 1.1 (e.g. to pick up normative changes that are not necessarily
reflected by schema changes)
