I'm not sure what this buys us (besides more namespaces). The dsig namespace
unambiguously identifies it. For instance:

<Encryption xmlns="http://ietf.org/RFCXXX"> 
   <EncryptionMethod Algorithm="http://pgp.com/pgp"/>
   <EncryptionValue>j6lwx3rvEPO0vKtMup4NbeVu8nk=</EncryptionValue> 
   <KeyInfo xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/02/xmldsig#"> 
      <KeyValue>MIIBtzCCASw</KeyValue>
   </KeyInfo>
</Encryption>
