Will be published today, the following links to both of your emails.

        Comment: A related requirement under consideration is that of being
able to 
        indicate those portions of a document one signs via exclusion of
those portions 
        one does not wish to sign. This allows one to create signatures that
        document closure, retain ancestor information when necessary, and
        element order of non-continuous regions that must be signed.We look
        feedback on options of meeting this requirement including a special
        element, an exclude list accompanying the resource locator, a change
in the 
        fragment or XPointer specification that would yield this
functionality. See 
        List(Boyer(1,2)) for further discussion of this issue.
