Hrmm... I don't want to encourage not using it explicitly. If I have a

   <Transform Algorithm="&xpath;">some Xpath</Transform>
   <Transform Algorithm="$c14n;"/>

Then exactly 1 canonicalization was done, the explicit one. (Could you given 
an example of a mistaken double c14n (implicit/explicit)?)
