Thanks for the clarification. As long as the enhancement to the protocol
doesn't "break" conformant implementations, I think that you and Paul are
right that the process won't be held up. I thought that I read that an
extension mechanism was going to be put in between PS and DS that would
change the protocol in such a way that implementations that conformed to
the PS version of CMS might get confused by the DS version of the protocol.
Obviously, this would be a bad thing.
