 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

Your comment on 5.4.2 PBKDF2 Identifier:
> Is the definition of PRFAlgorithmIdentifierType correct?
> In my understanding, it prohibits Parameters elements.
> oXygen (and probably Xerces) agrees with me.

Working Group Resolution (LC-2543):
The WG agrees with the interpretation that PRFAlgorithmIdentifierType
prohibits Parameters elements.

The WG also agreed and updated the schema and specification to add
type="anyURI" to  AlgorithmIdentifierType for the Algorithm attribute,
resulting in the following updated definition:

<complexType name="AlgorithmIdentifierType">
   <element name="Parameters" minOccurs="0"/>
  <attribute name="Algorithm" type="anyURI"/>
