I added the notary's bond identifier as an element because at least one state
requires it on the document as part of the notary's information, like
commission number. Since statutorily required bonds are either registered or
filed with the state commissioning agency there is no need to include the rest
of the information. No other information is required on the document.
A danger in putting too much notary information in the document is that the
area for that information gets pretty crowded in a viewable area for the
notary's signature and "information-required-by-law" (UETA, URPERA, ESIGN).
The typical data that needs to be near the notary's signature is "Notary
Public, State of _____," "Commission no.____," "Commission expiration date:
____," a city/county name if the commission is linked to a political
subdivision of the state, and the notary's printed name.

A question on the Notary Public's Commission Bond Number element
that John Jones had requested in the XSD:
1) Is this information that is expected to be carried in the
e-notarized document itself? If so,
a) Is the bond number sufficient?
b) Is the issuing company name, expiry date and amount
of the bond also required?
