Too long.  Again, if it's experimental, let's use the /2008/xmlsec/experimental namespace; if we think it's gelled sufficiently, let's coin something directly in /2010.

(Not having looked at dsig2 in detail recently, I wonder whether we define even more identifiers there?  If yes, then something like /2010/xmldsig2#... would be appropriate as a namespace URI.)

Therefore, I suggest that -- if we think we're ready to coin a URI for C14N 2.0 -- that should be /2010/xml-c14n2.  If we don't think we're ready yet to coin a URI, we should use /2008/xmlsec/experimental#c14n2 or something like that; we had allocated /2008/xmlsec/experimental for experimental identifiers.
