I think that is an interesting proposal. As a point of history, I believe we
introduced these as place-holders and examples such that readers could see
how to use KeyInfo for things beyond RSA and DSA. But as time went on and
people used those examples we refined what we had. However, we are
approaching a point that is out of scope.
