[Owasp-leaders] OWASP Top 10 2012

One of the things I'd really like for the Top 10 2012 is to stop focusing on the things that went wrong in the previous 12 months, and start to concentrate on the Top 10 things to get right for the next five years. The existing Top 10 regularly gets incorporated without permission into various other standards, and it's 100% the wrong way around for that purpose. The Top 10 was never designed to be a standard. 

To address this, here's my short list (in order):
Security Architecture (including incorporating agile ideas)
Use a (more) secure development frameworks and leverage enterprise frameworks (UAG, etc)
Input validation
Output Encoding
Identity: Authentication and Session Management
Access Control (service / controller, data, URL, function / CSRF, presentation, etc)
Data Protection (Data at rest, including in cloud)
Audit, Logging and Error Handling
Secure Configuration 
Secure Communications (Data in transit)
All of the items must be testable. All items must be positively framed and eliminate entire CWE classes in their own right.
