Yes, the ebXML group bumped into this a 2-3 weeks ago, primarily
concerned about signatures and the effect of intermediaries inserting
new headers, and "artistic" whitespace.  The decision was made to
document it and bring it up with XMLDSIG to fix, probably by defining a
new transform.

I think it's tricky to figure out how to address this at the "raw" SOAP
level, without constraining implementations (must-be-DOM vs must-be-SAX)
