Hi Matt,

This is just a confirmation message for closing the decision cycle.

The comments you reported[1] were assigned issue id 345-ml. p. [60]
of the bindings document was changed to read:

"[60] XKMS messages that will be embedded in SOAP documents SHOULD be
signed using the Exclusive XML Canonicalization algorithm [XML-EXC-C14N]."

As Tommy signaled, this was already being suggested, even if not directly
by pp. [89, 90] of the XKMS specification.

Please reply to this message if you have any objections.
