Hi Matt,

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

The comments you reported[1] were assigned issue id  343-ml[1].

The WG acknowledges your XKMS schema changes but has decided it is
not convenient to change the schema for additional clarity
at this stage. Your schema changes will be documented in a To-Do list (in
addition to the issues list) so that they can be taken into account
in future revisions of the XKMS specification.

Isuee 344-ml[2] was accepted and took into account the changes you
proposed to the text that will clarify the semantics.

Could you please acknowledge if you have any objections?
