Ah, OK I just re-read it - good.

I think my comment still applies to e.g.  env:mustUnderstand="1" vs 
env:mustUnderstand="true". You still need canonicalization to get a 
signature that will validate following an intermediary switching from 
"1" to "true" as we allow - just not quite such a radical 
canonicalization.
