The XML DSIG specification allows for the inclusion of 
a SignatureProperties element to encapsulate metadata 
for a signed object.  This concept has not been carried 
over into the XML Encryption specification, although it 
appears to have similar utility for encryption (date of 
encryption, URI of original document, log file entry id, 
etc.)  Is there a reason an 'EncryptionProperties' 
element was never defined for encryption?  Could this
be added to allow metadata to be associated with an
encrypted document?
