While these are laudable characteristics it is too late to consider the 
addition of other algorithms. Furthermore, even during the consideration we 
were looking for a minimal suite of ciphers by which we could ensure 
interoperability "out of the box". However, we also expect and encourage 
other algorithms to be used with XML Encryption. If you would like to see 
Camellia used with XML Encryption, the first step is to define an 
identifier and "profile", a test tar ball, and try to get some other 
implementations to interoperate. You could then try to publish this 
document a W3C Note or IETF document.
