Additional explaination was provided in my earlier response to Joeseph
Reagle's comment on the proposal.  But in essence:

	- Element encryption refers to encryption of an entire element
including the element tag, attributes, and all child nodes.
	- the NodeList refers to the ordered collection of children of an
element and is used to encrypt the contents of an element while leaving the
element tag and any attributes in the clear.
