xmldsig-core 1.1: New algorithm IDs for ECDSA?

Working on the algorithms draft, I notice that XML Signature 1.1 seems  
to recycle the "old" (RFC 4050) algorithm identifiers for ECDSA, but  
with new elements for key material.  I could see an argument in favor  
of changing the algorithm URIs if we expect a different format for key  
material.  Thoughts?

Regards,
