In XML encryption 1.1, the PBKDF2-params/KeyLength is superfluous

Can we remove the  KeyLength parameter in  PBKDF2 ?

 

In the other two key derivation functions - ConcatKDF and LegacyKeyDerivation, the length of the key to be derived is not specified , rather it needs to be inferred from the context.  We should have PBKDF2  also behave similarly.
