Hello All,

I have a question/comment.

From what I understand the CarriedKeyName attribute is meant to identify a
given <EncryptedKey> structure. If this is the case, why not simply rely on
the Id attribute of <EncryptedKey>? As far as I can tell, CarriedKeyName
doesn't really identify a recipient. The Id attribute can provide the same
functionality with one less attribute.
