Hi Rigo,

In [1], you asked about including xaedes in the xkms spec. Its only
today (chatting with Jose) that I finally figured out that you wanted
us to add XAdES as a row in the usekeywith list in 5.1.3 of part 1 [2].

Well, I don't think that that'd be a good thing to do, since the
other entries in the "application" column are all applications (*)
and are not data formats. So, for example, we do include "S/MIME"
but do not include "CMS". Inlcuding CMS or XMLSIG would be the
equivalent to including XAdES.

Hope this clarifies things, and sorry for being so obtuse about what
you were requesting,


(*) Ok, so PKIX isn't really, but the well-defined but highly complex
PKIX ldap & path processing rules are such that it makes sense to flag
this in a locate/validate as a hint for the server.
