I'd suggest avoiding any references to signature constructs like a transform
chain, and just say:

"Note: Canonical XML 2.0, unlike earlier versions, does not support direct
input of an octet stream. The transformation of such a stream into the input
model required by this specification is application-specific and should be
defined in specifications that reference or make use of this one."
