Merely wondering if my objection to XML in this context could be made  
to "go away".  Presume not (reasonably anyway), therefore presume  
it's a red herring.

However  ;-)

Is it conceivable that we could define a standards compliant SAML  
token, that could be produced in XER, that would also be accepted  
outside the Kerberos community?  Given that the answer to the first  
two is yes, I won't believe the answer to the last is yes until  
someone tells me so.

Therefore it's still a red herring.  We now return to our regularly- 
scheduled discussion.
