Is http://www.w3.org/2009/xmldsig11#ECKeyValue a key agreement 
algorithm?  Probably, not.  But I don't think  that 5.6.4 is clear
enough.  What's the point of showing "identifiers" in non-algorithm
elements?  After all, XML uses qnames rather than identifiers containing 
fragment identifiers.  Why does the XML Signature WG invent such 
identifiers?

Is "the ECPublicKey element" in Encryption 1.1 and Signature 1.1
actually the ECKeyValue element?

Cheers,
Makoto
