      Joseph:

      IMHO any use of these new algorithms should go into Don's URI draft
rather than the base specification.  There's no reason to slow down the
xenc spec for this.

I'm not soliciting any additional algorithms or functionality. I feel we're

in a "finish it up" phase and the present discussion with respect to the
spec is to ensure that we satifactorily meet our requirements (i.e., dsig
working with xenc).
