fyi, this came in as a comment on Canonical XML.

FWIW, I'll make sure that public-xmlsec-comments gets subscribed to
the comment mailing lists for all the specs that we are chartered to
deal with, to make it easier to follow them all.

Can xml canonicalization further be extended to eliminate the need of the
name of the element in end tag / make it optional?

Objective here is to reduce the size of overall xml content

E.g.
<RootElement>
<FirstChildElement>
<FirstChildOfFirstChildElement></>
<SecondChildOfFirstChildElement></>
</>
<SecondChildElement></>
</>

There is a slight loss of readability here at the gain of reduced content
size.

Thanks
