I discussed ISSUE-34 [2] with Frederick Hirsch (XML Security 
Specifications Maintenance WG Chair) regarding whether XML Encryption 
would be a good candidate for an elaborated infoset processing model. I 
updated the action [1] with my summary of Frederick's comment and marked 
it as 'pending review'.

Frederick offered to discuss the issue within the WG, but his opinion 
was (roughly) that XML encryption is not a good candidate for inclusion 
in a default processing model, as encryption is typically handled in 
very application-specific ways.
