Hi,

This is Satoru Kanno from NTT Software.

We checked the draft of 'XML Encryption Syntax and Processing Version 1.1'.
Link: http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlenc-core1/

However, we feel regret for this draft not including the Camellia algorithm
on section of 5.2 Block Encryption Algorithm and 5.6 Symmetric Key Wrap.

This is because the Camellia has identifier as already published RFC4051:
-2.6.2.  Camellia Block Encryption
 Identifiers:
      http://www.w3.org/2001/04/xmldsig-more#camellia128-cbc
      http://www.w3.org/2001/04/xmldsig-more#camellia192-cbc
      http://www.w3.org/2001/04/xmldsig-more#camellia256-cbc

-2.6.3.  Camellia Key Wrap
 Identifiers:
      http://www.w3.org/2001/04/xmldsig-more#kw-camellia128
      http://www.w3.org/2001/04/xmldsig-more#kw-camellia192
      http://www.w3.org/2001/04/xmldsig-more#kw-camellia256


We strongly appreciate it (and of course we hope) if you would consider
addition of the Camellia algorithm, as an OPTIONAL cipher.

Best regards,
