This was less an assertion and more a proposal. While some folks are 
supportive I've had further conversations with folks (AC reps and team 
members) about this and while folks would like to see the work move as 
quickly as possible  I don't have agreement that shoe-honing something 
like ws-sec into an existing WG is a good idea. I expect if I attempted 
this, the subsequent discussion would include the essential questions of 
scope plus discussion, and maybe even opposition, as to whether this was 
the right approach. Consequently, I thing our efforts would better be spent 
on helping the web services activity determine the scope and focus of this 

Consequently, I don't plan on widening the scope of any of the existing 
activities in any charter renewels. However, you can help move things along 
1. Commenting on the  Web Services Architecture
2. Participating (or helping your representative) in the Architecture WG 
focus on a charter for immediate ws-security-like work, and defining the 
bigger picture.
