It is a base64 encoded octet sequence corresponding to the encrypted
'raw' symmetric key material.   It does not have a type other than being
an octet sequence acceptable for use as a key for some encryption
algorithm.

I suspect I'm confusing myself, but what's in an EncryptedKey's
CipherData? 
We can't specify this in schema easily (it's like a 2nd dimension) but I

think we should say something, is it a KeyInfo, a child of KeyInfo (or 
something from some other namespace), or is it a raw symmetric key
without a 
description of type?
