Re: WG Last Call: draft-ietf-smime-aes-keywrap-00.txt

I'm just wondering why these two -00 drafts, which don't seem to 
have much to do with the smime wg (e.g. they don't reference any 
other wg document), are being processed this way. Did I sleep for
a bit at the last meeting and miss the explanation?

My only possibly useful comment (not being able to review 48 
pages including binary samples in the time alloted) is that 
it'd be nice to allocate URIs for these wrapping algorithms 
as well as OIDs. Or did you expect the W3C XML Encryption 
group should do that? (Hope I don't cause some sort of process 
hell by suggesting that one rfc contain both the OIDs and

Dear S/MIME WG Members:

This message announces Working Group Last Call for aes-keywrap.  The two
authors have independently written implementations of the specification,
and the implementations interoperate.  This indicates that the
specification contains the necessary detail.

        Title           : AES Key Wrap Algorithm
        Author(s)       : J. Schaad, R. Housley
        Filename        : draft-ietf-smime-aes-keywrap-00.txt
        Date            : 06-Feb-02

The intent is to publish aes-keywrap as an Informational RFC.

Please review aes-keywrap, and post any comments to the 
mail list by Saturday, 23 February 2002.  Unless traffic on the mail list
indicates otherwise, I will
send these to the IESG shortly after WG Last Call closes.
