ISSUE-183 Constrain 2.0 SignedInfo canonicalization choice for 2.0 model? [1]

I think this issue evolved since it was first noted. Initially it was part of Ed's proposal,  "XML Signature Strawman Proposal" (slide 14 onwards), Ed Simon, 2007 November: http://www.w3.org/2007/xmlsec/f2f-2007-11-08/XML-Signature-Proposal-2.pdf

Subsequently we decided not to change the structure of XML Signature schema significantly in order to maintain backward compatibility (the 2.0 mode approach).

This left the issue as a question of whether in 2.0 we should constrain the canonicalization method choice for SignedInfo, and I believe we decided not to do so.

Proposal:  close this issue with no change required

regards, Frederick
