It seems like we need to define URIs for the various mask generation functions, along the lines of the following:

http://www.w3.org/2009/xmlenc11#mgf1sha1
http://www.w3.org/2009/xmlenc11#mgf1sha224
http://www.w3.org/2009/xmlenc11#mgf1sha256
http://www.w3.org/2009/xmlenc11#mgf1sha384
http://www.w3.org/2009/xmlenc11#mgf1sha512

I propose we define these in XML Encryption 1.1 along with the RSA-OAEP URIs.

(Corresponding object identifiers are defined in RFC 4055 which we can reference).

An alternative might be to define them in RFC 4051, using http://www.w3.org/2001/04/xmldsig-more# but I think http://www.w3.org/2009/xmlenc11# is more appropriate.

Suggestions?

regards, Frederick
