An XKMS service MAY indicate a key binding's validity interval using the
<ValidityInterval> element as defined in 5.1.5 in [1].  This element has
two attributes of type xsd:dateTime, NotBefore and NotOnOrAfter, both
of which are optional.

I imagine the attributes are optional for the purpose of supporting the
various flavors of PKI's mentioned in the specification.

The way the text in 5.1.5 is formulated permits an XKMS service to specify
only one or neither of the boundary attributes even though their 
counterparts
exist in the underlying PKI.

I propose that a relying party ought to be assured to get both attributes
when they exist in the underlying PKI.

Any thoughts on this?

Regards
Tommy
