It is, in the first place, the default behavior of the XML Signature 
Reference Processing Model for external documents.

You're right that there's a possible design choice here to *permit* (not 
mandate) canonicalization regardless. It sounds like you suggest that 
the WG make that choice, by not prohibiting use of C14N for XML content, 
but simply leaving it open?
