Hi,

Could this be addressed by simply eliminating EnvelopedSignature,
as suggested, and letting such applications use either an XPointer
or, more probably, just a null URI. This null URI can be interpreted
as per the application's needs. A null URI would obviously render
such signatures domain-specific, but it would simplify our task.
