Kent, Joseph,

> A KeyInfo element represents information about *a* key, doesn't it?
> 
> 4.4 The KeyInfo Element, 2nd paragraph:
> >> Multiple declarations within KeyInfo refer to the same key. 

In 4.4, 1st paragraph it says:

  "KeyInfo may contain keys, names, certificates and other 
   public key management information"

According to this sentence, several KeyValue clauses in KeyInfo,
refering to different keys would be possible. What is really intended?

Regards, Gregor
