A schema represented in XML Schema can have default values, which 
affect the information set and thus C14N.

Suppose that this schema is referenced via a URI.  In XML Schema, 
the means used to locate appropriate schemas are processor and 
application dependent.  Some schema-aware processors use the 
referenced schema.  However, other schema-aware processors 
may use different schemas, which may contain different defaults.  
Therefore, the result of C14N would be processor and application 
dependent.  Is this acceptable for digital signature?
