It looks like we will need to define a URI for DSA-SHA256

would the following be appropriate for dsa-sha256 in signature 1.1:
http://www.w3.org/2009/02/xmldsig11#dsa-sha256
I assume we will also need URIs for key values. Which other algorithms  
do we need URIs for?

Should we use the same base URI for Signature Properties and derived  
keys to avoid too many new URIs?

Any comment or suggestions on the URI itself?

regards, Frederick
