   Canonicalization < 15 minutes

      * Boyer: would like implementors to confirm if his examples operate
        in the new spec the way implemenations do.
      * Namespaces: Kent asked about rational for namespace reduction,
        Boyer responded on list and in [7]Last Call Issues.
      * Whitespace: addressed in [8]Last Call Issues. Presently, this can
        invite a ton of trouble that people aren't keen to get into right
      * DOMHASH: some discussion, not a lot of interest presently. DOMHASH
        should work with present canonicalizations.

   Content Model

      * Moved Transforms content model to ElementOnly.

   RSA and OIDS

      * Merlin posted a [9]summary of options.
      * Bartel prefer 2.
      * ACTION: Reagle, email poll of which option people want.
      * ACTION: Reagle, get Brian/Barb to tweak text once resolved..


   RetrievalMethod Type

      * No one opposed to making Type optional subsequent to [10]Reagle's
        argument: since its not associated with mandatory behaviour, why
        make it mandatory when it can also constrain people in ways that
        don't benefit anyone.



      * Eastlake wants to tweak KeyInfo example of 4.4.4. ACTION Eastlake:
        send to Reagle this afternoon.
      * Boyer: Include in STATUS: Implementors should take special note of
        the here() function, it's not the same as the XPointer for which a
        few questions have been raised and the XLink WG is looking at but
        haven't responded to yet.
      * Simon: We're trying to organize an XML Encryption meeting, looking
        at the end of October (week of October 30th).
      * Boyer (and others): later in week would be better for those adults
        who have children (and those adults who still enjoy Halloween
        themselves :) .)
