I'd be surprised if any crypto vendors (still in business :) require the 
entire datastream to be available all at once.  From the beginning, the 
digest mechanisms were able to work in "chunks."  It might be worth 
mentioning this as an aside, but such poor code already has issues with 
keeping an entire copy of the c14n'd document in-core now.  Since we all 
expect the binary data to be much bigger, however, it's probably worth 
making that explicit.
