Section 2.1.5 (
http://www.w3.org/2007/xmlsec/Drafts/xmldsig-bestpractices/#id2247323) has 
invalid XML in the summary (e.g., like below)

<Transform Algorithm="http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-xpath-19991116">
       <XPath>1<:XPath>
     </Transform>

And the xml example to which it links (
http://www.w3.org/2007/xmlsec/Drafts/xmldsig-bestpractices/samples/dos_toomanytranforms.xml
) seems to have developed an inadvertent stutter:

  <ns0:e2 /> 
  <ns0:e2 /> 
  <ns0:e2 /> 
  <ns0:e2 /> 
  <ns0:e2 /> 
...

The xml example also would put XPath in the dsig namespace, as below:

  <dsig:XPath>1</dsig:XPath>
