     I think we should change, and not solely for consistency reasons.
Although the DSS specifies SHA-1, it would be fairly easy to use a DSA key
with RIPEMD-160, and people might well call that signature algorithm
"dsa-ripe".

Presently, our algorithm identifiers are:

http://www.w3.org/2000/02/xmldsig#dsa
http://www.w3.org/2000/02/xmldsig#rsa-sha1

Should we move to http://www.w3.org/2000/02/xmldsig#dsa-sha1 for
consistence?
