Hi Donald,

In [1], section 5.4.2 RSA-OAEP there is this ds:DigestMethod element. I can 
use SHA-1 like in RFC2437 but I can use other algos, too. When I use 
another ds:DigestMethod, I MUST add the element to indicate which algo I 

But what happens if I use the SHA-1 ? Can I omit the element (cause it's 
optional by schema and the default from RFC2437)? Or is it only optional 
cause we cannot schema-constrain it based on the ../@Algorithm but MUST 
include it if 
../@Algorithm="http://www.w3.org/2001/04/xmlenc#rsa-oaep-mgf1p" ???

I mean, is the following possible?

  <OAEPparams> 9lWu3Q== </OAEPparams>
