Ed,  at the workshop you mentioned things like SMIL which I'm somewhat 
unfamiliar with. I don't believe the SMIL instance is streamed, instead it's 
a discrete object that includes meta-data (synchronization) and 
references/invocations of streams [1]. Could you provide an example/scneario 
of how one would use XML Encryption with streaming ciphers?
