XML DSIG can sign arbitrary bytes; requiring "translate to base64" 
before signing seems like needless cost.

On the other hand, given the different base64 output formats, the safest 
thing to do is to define a "base64 c14n" transform that ignores all 
whitespace.  Every time a new URI is introduced, interop takes a hit, 
but I see no feasible alternative.
