Not to split hairs, but the wording in the last line of Jeff Heflin's
text might raise some flags. "It should be straightforward" may
suggest we don't understand the basis of the interaction between XML
Signatures and OWL. 

I recommend wording to the effect of:
...
"XML Signatures and cononicalization transformations can be applied
safely to OWL expressions because OWL conforms to the XML standard."
