Archivation purpose: Digest - RFC 2803 - April 2000

There is an informational RFC 2803 [1]
discussing "Digest Values for DOM (DOMHASH)"
I know the discussion: hashes computed on 
the XML-Layer vs. hashes computed on the 
RDF-Model-Layer. I notice the RFC only 
for archivation purposes for the case the discussion 
moves again to the situation that hashes 
should be computed on the XML-Layer (or more
precise: DOM-Layer).

Some clippings:

:This memo defines a clear and unambiguous definition of digest (hash)
:values of the XML objects regardless of the surface string variation
:of XML. This definition can be used for XML digital signature as well
:efficient replication of XML objects.

[snip]

:The purpose of this document is to give a clear and unambiguous
:definition of digest (hash) values of the XML objects [XML].  Two
:subtrees are considered identical if their hash values are the same,
:and different if their hash values are different.
