[OGSA-AUTHZ] status of OASIS SAML V2.0 Deployment Profiles for X.509 Subjects

FYI, the OASIS SAML V2.0 Deployment Profiles for X.509 Subjects was
recently voted to Committee Specification status:


Briefly, the life of an OASIS document is as follows:

Working Draft ==> Committee Draft ==> 60-day Public Review ==>
    Committee Specification ==> Attestations ==> OASIS Standard

Before a Committee Specification can be considered as an OASIS
Standard, three OASIS member organizations must attest to have
implemented the Specification.  In the case of the Deployment Profiles
for X.509 Subjects, I don't believe three such attestations exist, so
I predict the document is destined to go no higher than Committee
Specification.  I mention this because it may have some bearing on an
issue being discussed in another thread.
