As a FYI, XML Signature is a Candidate Recommendation. If people in this WG 
thought that we could solve the related problems by confused and complex 
contortion in this WG, or a simple tweak there, we could propose the tweak. 
Even though there is a huge cross-over in the people involved, it might not 
be accepted and it'd still have to go by the larger community and the  W3C 
Director because of Signature's mature status. However, it could be done, 
but not to jump the gun: I'm not sure if we have such a proposal yet...
