I plan, this week, to update my draft of additional URIs for XML 
security, draft-eastlake-xmldsig-uri-02.txt. (See 
http://216.239.53.100/search?q=cache:KVeuGJJin50C:www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-eastlake-xmldsig-uri-02.txt+draft-eastlake-xmldsig-uri-02.txt&hl=en&ie=UTF-8
)
Would adding a URI there be satisfactory?

Thanks,
Donald
