Meiko had said that it is not very clear how to do Enveloped Signatures in Dsig 2.0.



We already had this

6.7.1 Selection Type="http://www.w3.org/2010/xmldsig2#xml"



"EnvelopedSignature: "true" or "false". Whether the current signature should be excluded from the selection. 

Note: The parameter EnvelopedSignature may be removed, because in an enveloped signature, sign an EnvelopedSignature without excluding the signature itself."


We need to decide if we are going to remove it.



I also added this line in section "6.8 "2.0 Mode" Canonicalization Algorithms" in the Oct 16th draft.

"Note: The input passed to Canonicalization must always exclude the current <Signature> node. I.e. the <Signature> must be passed as one of the exclusion elements. This is equivalent to always having an implicit Enveloped Signature Transform. "


And this one too  in section " The dsig2:Selection Element"

"In the first case, the current Signature node must be added as an exclusion, even if it is not explicitly excluded by the Selection"
